Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke men’s basketball student-athletes met the media Monday afternoon at Cameron Indoor Stadium, on the eve of the official start of practice for the 2019-20 season.
Coach K addressed a wide range of topics in his preseason press conference, most significantly commenting on his team’s outlook for 2019-20, th expectations on returning upperclassmen Tre Jones, Javin DeLaurier and Jack White — the team’s tri-captains, and his thoughts on the talented freshman class. In addition to media activities for Coach K and the players, the Blue Devils also took their team photo on Monday.
Tuesday’s practice marks six weeks before Duke’s opener versus Kansas in the State Farms Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden on November 5. The Blue Devils’ Countdown to Craziness event is planned for Friday, October 18, with preseason games set for Saturday, October 26 (versus Northwest Missouri State) and Wednesday, October 30 (versus Fort Valley State).
