There’s just under four months until the start of the 2019-20 NCAA basketball season and many teams are working on assembling their non-conference schedules. For Duke, that job is now nearly done.
While the ACC hasn’t yet announced dates for all conference matchups for the 2019-20 season, Duke has now finalized its list of non-conference opponents.
Here is Duke’s non-conference schedule for the 2019-20 season:
November 5 – vs. Kansas (State Farm Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden)
November 8 – vs. Colorado State
November 12 – vs. Central Arkansas
November 15 – vs. Georgia State
November 21 – vs. California (Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden)
November 22 – vs. Georgetown/Texas winner (Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden)
November 26 – vs. Stephen F. Austin
November 29 – vs. Winthrop
Early-December – at Michigan State (Big Ten/ACC Challenge)
December 19 – vs. Wofford
December 28 – vs. Brown
Additionally, the Blue Devils will play two exhibition games in October against Northwest Missouri State and Fort Valley State.
Here is how the ACC home-and-away games shake out:

Duke went 26-5 in the regular season before winning the ACC Tournament and earning a 1-seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
However, the Blue Devils were upset by Michigan State in the Elite Eight, abruptly ending what had seemed like a historic season in the making.
They head into the 2019-20 season with yet another top recruiting class and will likely be among the early favorites for the NCAA title.
