By Sports Information

TORONTO - ESPN+ will be the home for the Duke Canada Tour, as the 2018-19 team travels to Canada, playing in three games during their five-day trip, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 15, through Sunday, Aug. 19. The Blue Devils will face three universities – Ryerson University and University of Toronto at Paramount Fine Foods Centre (Toronto), and McGill at Place Bell (Montreal). Games will be available to stream via ESPN+, and televised on TSN and RDS in Canada.

Duke boasts the No. 1 incoming class according to ESPN Recruiting Nation, with the top three recruits on the ESPN 100 – Canadian native No. 1 R.J. Barrett, No. 2 Zion Williamson and No. 3 Cam Reddish, as well as No. 10 Tre Jones.

In addition to game coverage, ESPN+ will feature an eight-episode, all-access series, Earn Everything, documenting the Blue Devils’ preparation for the 2018-19 season to be released this fall. The series, produced by Intersport, will follow the team from their first time together on campus, through their trip to preseason exhibitions in Canada and into the final preparations leading up to their State Farm Champions Classic matchup against the Kentucky Wildcats. Along the way, college basketball fans will get an inside peek at how Coach K and his staff mold a group of talented basketball players into a group of “Duke Basketball Players.”

ESPN play-by-play commentator Dan Shulman and lead college basketball analyst Jay Bilas will call all the action from Canada.
