Every year, SFA plays at least one big name school during their pre-season. Over the past few years, they've played schools such as Kentucky, Baylor, and Alabama, among others. However, this year they will be playing a school that rivals all of those, considering their basketball legacy.

On November 26, 2019, the Lumberjacks will be traveling to Durham, North Carolina to take on the Duke Blue Devils.

Yes, you read that right. The Jacks will be taking on Coach K's Blue Devils on their very own home court. This, in my opinion will be the biggest challenge that I've seen SFA up against. We're talking about Duke. You know, the team that 95% of the nation has in their final four bracket predictions every year? Yes, them. This is sure to be quite the test of the Lumberjacks.

Now, you may remember that last season didn't turn out quite how SFA would have liked. The Lumberjacks finished the season with a record of 14-16 (7-11 in conference play), just missing out on a Southland Conference Tournament appearance. However, this year, they are hoping to turn that around and find their way back to the top of the Southland Conference and into March Madness.

As of right now, the game against Duke is the only game that has been released. The rest of the basketball schedule will be released at a later date.
