A Benefit for the Emily K Center

Saturday October 13th, 2018


Thank you for your interest in Inside Duke Basketball! This event is sold-out. To be placed on our wait-list please contact Sarah Brockett: or 919-680-0308.

The Duke Basketball program and the Emily Krzyzewski Center will team up once again to allow basketball fans an exclusive first look at the Duke 2018-2019 men’s basketball team.  

Inside Duke Basketball participants will pick up breakfast to enjoy inside Cameron Indoor Stadium before Coach K leads the Blue Devils in a preseason practice and offers insider reflections on his five-time national championship program. A short update on the non-profit Coach K founded in honor of his mother, Emily, follows the practice, and the event concludes with a private autograph and photo session with Coach.

Ticket proceeds benefit the Emily K Center, a donor-funded non-profit organization that serves as a college access hub in Durham, North Carolina. The Center propels academically-focused, low-income K-12 students and graduates toward success in college through its K to College programs while also offering college information and advising support to any local high school student through the Game Plan: College program.
