The Duke Blue Devils will almost certainly be one of the best teams in the country next season. Despite losing key talent to the NBA and the transfer portal, Duke will have a loaded roster thanks to having the best freshman class in the nation, spearheaded by Cooper Flagg.

Therefore, Jon Scheyer and the Blue Devils will have all eyes on them next season as teams will try to take down the best player in the country, Cooper Flagg. Duke will have plenty of high-stakes matchups on their schedule and they don't seem to be shying away from making it as challenging as possible for themselves.

According to Jon Rothstein of College Hoops Today, Duke is finalizing an agreement with Kansas for a neutral site game in November in Las Vegas.

Duke and Kansas Set to Meet in Las Vegas for Non-Conference Game Next Season

The matchup against Kansas is just another tough non-conference game Duke has scheduled so far for next season. They were already slated to play at Arizona and Kentucky. Bill Self had the eighth-best recruiting class in the country according to Rivals.com and they will surely start the season as a top-ten team in basketball.

After winning the national championship in 2022, Kansas has lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back years. Duke and Kansas have met 14 times in their history, the Blue Devils winning eight of the matchups. Their most recent game was on November 15, 2022, when Duke lost to the Jayhawks, 69-64.

With a total of nine national championships between the two sides, this matchup between these rivals will surely be must-see television.
