The University of South Dakota men's basketball team will play for a national television audience. 

The Coyotes travel to Durham, North Carolina to take on the Duke Blue Devils in December. 

ESPN2 will televise the game between the schools. It's the first time USD and Duke have played each other. USD head coach Craig Smith says the national coverage is "fantastic" for the University, the Summit League, and the entire State of South Dakota. 

Duke is expected to top the NCAA Division One preseason polls. The Blue Devils and head coach Mike Krzyzewski have won six national championships in their history. 

USD returns three starters from last year and will defend their Summit League regular season crown this season. 

Tip off is set for 2:30 p.m. Central Time on Saturday, December 2nd from Cameron Indoor Stadium.
