Once again, Duke men’s basketball’s tenting season has been delayed.
Following Duke’s Dec. 31 announcement that in-person classes will not be held until Jan. 18, a Jan. 2 email to students from head line monitors indicated that tenting will not commence until students return to the classroom. Both the entrance trivia test and the opening of K-Ville, previously scheduled for Jan. 9 and Jan. 16, will be rescheduled for a later date.
“The actual dates for trivia and tenting will be postponed until sometime after in-person classes start,” read the email. “We want to clarify that we are working to push back things, including the date of the test, to account for the new start of in-person classes.”
“We hopefully will have a more exact answer for you all on date changes sometime at the end of the week,” the email continued.
Prior to this development, a similar Dec. 23 email from head line monitors detailed the many changes to tenting policy intended to curb the spread of COVID-19. In addition to a delayed start, the initial changes introduced new rules and canceled Black tenting altogether.
Tenting registration opened at 12 p.m. Jan. 2, just hours before this most recent announcement. The tenting registration period will remain open until Jan. 3 at 12 p.m. An additional 24 hour registration period will be offered once the expected scheduling changes are announced.
