Duke Basketball History
The Duke Blue Devils are one of the all-time greatest programs in NCAA Division I basketball. The Blue Devils have represented Duke University in the Atlantic Coast Conference since the conference's formation in 1953. While Duke may be a small private school, make no mistake about it - they have a huge fan base that supports them at home and on the road. Despite an arena that holds less than 10,000 fans, Duke basketball tickets consistently sell out and Cameron Indoor Stadium is one of the most raucous home college basketball crowds in the country. Duke became the fourth men's college basketball program to accumulate 2,000 wins during the 2013-14 season. Overall, the Duke Blue Devils have four NCAA championships (tied for fifth-all time), 15 Final Four appearances (tied for third all-time), 38 NCAA tournament appearances and 22 conference championships. With all their team success, they've had some fantastic basketball players. In total, they've had 36 All-Americans (with 60 total selections), 11 players named National Player of the Year, and 71 players that have gone on to the NBA.
The majority of that success is due to Mike Krzyzewski, one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all time. Coach K, as he is affectionately known, became the 19th basketball coach at Duke University on March 18, 1980. In November 2014, he began his 35th season at the helm of the program with 983 wins. He's on pace to become the first coach to reach 1,000 wins sometime in January or February 2015. The majority of Duke's success both in Duke basketball ticket sales and on the court has been under Coach K, which is why the school has been considered one of the best college basketball programs since the 80's. Under Coach K, Duke has 81 tournament wins (most ever by a coach), 11 Final Fours (the most since 1984-85) with five straight appearances in the Final Four from 1988 to 1992, he's coached 21 NBA first round picks and has had 12 30-win seasons and 29 20-win seasons. He's had three losing seasons at Duke and none since 1994-1995. Duke has missed the NCAA tournament just once since the 1983-1984 season. As long as Coach K remains in Durham, it’s safe to say that the Duke program will continue its dominant run in the NCAA.
