Duke’s soon-to-depart international trip isn’t all about their own foreign education.
The Blue Devils will also be spreading their own basketball knowledge, according to a press release from the Duke Athletic Department. The team will host a youth clinic on August 19 in Shanghai as part of the Nike “Festival of Sport.”
“This clinic presents our team with a wonderful opportunity to interact with younger Chinese players,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said in the release. “Hopefully, in some small way, we can help some of the youngsters with the development of their skills.”
The clinic is part of the Blue Devils’ 14-day trip through China and Dubai which begins Sunday. Be sure to stay tuned to The Blue Zone for more coverage of the trip, as well as our new page dedicated to our exclusive coverage while traveling with the team.
