VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - The University of South Dakota’s men’s basketball team will play perennial power Duke later this year.

The school has announced a Dec. 2 matchup with the Blue Devils in Durham, North Carolina. It will be the first game between the two programs.

Coyotes coach Craig Smith says his team is “pumped” to play “one of the premier programs in the history of NCAA college basketball.”

Duke has won five national championships and competed in 16 Final Fours.

South Dakota is coming off its first Summit League regular season championship.
