At Duke University excellence is a way of life. That excellence is personified through the teachings and example of the Blue Devils’ renowned head basketball coach, Mike Krzyzewski. Coach K has inspired thousands of lives throughout his tenure as a leader at Duke, and his teams have thrilled countless millions of fans.
ZEBRADOG is honored to have designed and built the Duke Basketball Museum and Athletics Hall of Fame, paying special tribute to Coach K. It is the epicenter of greatness. The epicenter of excellence. And the soul of a historic university nestled in the North Carolina pine stands.
“The heritage and success of our basketball program and all of our sports deserve this level of recognition and celebration,” says Duke Vice President & Director of Athletics Kevin White. “It is exciting for our entire department to see this come alive and hopefully give our fans and alumni another place to stop, enjoy, and relive their memories of Duke Basketball and all of our sports programs. We have a lot to celebrate."
Duke Basketball’s unparalleled success is archived with a multitude of trophy displays, including a ring of the four title trophies, interactive videos and memorabilia—all on display for the first time under one roof. Inside the museum are great photo opportunities that put you in the middle of two iconic areas of Duke Basketball: the tent city known as Krzyzewskiville and the Cameron Crazies.
“We are so excited to open the Duke Basketball Museum and the renovated Duke Athletics Hall of Fame," says Coach K. "It is an appropriate tribute to the tremendous heritage of Duke Athletics. When you see the accomplishments of all of those who’ve represented this Athletics Department collected in one location, Duke’s long-standing excellence becomes apparent. We hope that fans take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate the history of Duke Athletics.”
