Duke, Kansas Set To Matchup in 2024 Vegas Showdown

NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Indiana

On Thursday afternoon, ESPN Events announced that the Kansas Jayhawks will play against the Duke Blue Devils on Nov. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Dating back to 1985, Duke leads the all-time series 8-6 with its last matchup on Nov. 15, 2022 where the Jayhawks won 69-64.

Furman will also take on Seattle the same night, after the Battle of the Blue Bloods.

 

ESPN ranked Kansas as No. 1 in its Way-Too-Early Top 25 Ranking, whereas Duke came in at No. 8. The Jayhawks return three starters from last year’s squad including Hunter Dickinson, KJ Adams, and Dajuan Harris Jr. KU landed Wisconsin transfer AJ Storr and South Dakota State transfer Zeke Mayo this offseason.

The Blue Devils made a splash with the No. 1 player in the Class of 2024, Cooper Flagg. Former Blue Devil Kyle Filipowski left for the NBA Draft, but the team still returns Tyrese Proctor and Caleb Foster. Freshman guard Jared McCain also declared for the NBA Draft, while Jeremy Roach transferred to Baylor.

Kansas’ season ended early last season in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in a loss to Gonzaga, while Duke made it to the Elite 8 before running into the NC State Wolfpack.
