The highest bidder in the auction will receive, among other opportunities, tickets behind the Duke bench for the North Carolina game. 

Legendary head coach Mike Krzyzewski went in front of the camera to make a big announcement Friday.

In an Instagram video posted via the team's page, Krzyzewski announced Duke basketball’s entrance into Michael Rubin’s All In Challenge.


The package is chock-full of iconic Blue Devil experiences, none being more important than the two behind the bench tickets to the Duke versus North Carolina game. Complementing the tickets are a myriad of options such as a game of H-O-R-S-E with assistant coach Jon Scheyer and exclusive access to the team’s pregame walk through. 

Former Blue Devil and current ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas joined in on the challenge as well, offering up a spot on 94 Feet, his show where he interviews a college basketball star in the time it takes them to walk the 94 feet of the basketball court.

Krzyzewski stated that there would be even more perks thrown into the prize and even joked that the winner would be allowed to call the first play of the rivalry game. 

He closed with saying Duke basketball is proud to officially be all in with their efforts to aid in COVID-19 relief. The bidding price is currently at $28,000 dollars but will likely skyrocket by the times the auction closes in the next week.

Check out what other former Blue Devils are doing to help out this great cause.
