Duke will have nearly two weeks off between its upcoming game against Notre Dame and its matchup with Pittsburgh Dec. 29.
Duke will have nearly two weeks off between its upcoming game against Notre Dame and its matchup with Pittsburgh Dec. 29.

It looks like Duke will get no more warm-ups before its 20-game ACC gauntlet.

The Blue Devils have cancelled their remaining nonconference games, per a Duke men's basketball press release.



Duke had one scheduled nonconference game coming against Gardner-Webb Dec. 19 (a game that was originally supposed to be the Blue Devils' season-opener Nov. 25), while two other previously-postponed nonconference games against Elon and Charleston Southern also had the potential of being rescheduled. 

None of those games will be played this season.

The Blue Devils' next scheduled game comes against Notre Dame Wednesday at 9 p.m. in the team's ACC opener. Duke will then take a two-week break before taking on Pittsburgh Dec. 29.
