Even more reason for basketball fans to rejoice! College bball favorite Duke is coming to Shanghai in August to play three Friendship Games against the Chinese national Olympic team! The Blue Devils will of course be lead by legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski, also the man who took the USA team to Olympic victory in Beijing back in 2008. The teams will play games in Kunshan, Shanghai, and Beijing to celebrate the opening of Duke’s new campus in Kunshan (lulwut?). They will play at Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena on August 18, the first basketball game to be held at the
wasteful underused giant new venue. Their last game will be in Beijing on August 22. Tickets range from 80RMB to 880RMB, and you can buy them over at Smart Shanghai. Supposedly NBA star Grant Hill, a Duke alumni, will also be traveling with the team.
