Indiana Will Play at Duke in the 2018 Big Ten/ACC Challenge

The Big Ten has confirmed what was originally reported by Jon Rothstein.  Indiana will travel to Durham, North Carolina to play Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium in connection with the 2018 Big Ten/ACC Challenge.  The game will be played on November 27.

The programs also met in the 2017 Big Ten/ACC Challenge in Bloomington on November 29.  Duke won that meeting 91-81 in a game that was tightly contested until the last couple minutes.

The game could be a top 25 match-up, and will feature two of the top 10 recruiting classes of 2018.

Duke leads the all-time series 6-3 and it has won the last four meetings.  Indiana has never won on Duke’s home floor.  In their only trips to Durham, IU lost in both the 2006 and 2015 Big Ten/ACC Challenges.

Indiana’s last win in the series was a memorable 2002 victory in the NCAA tournament.  The other IU wins were in the 1987 NCAA tournament and the 1996 Preseason NIT.  In the latter contest, Andrae Patterson scored a career high 39 points.
