Michigan women's basketball team will host Duke in ACC/Big Ten Challenge
Kim Barnes Arico won't have to wait long for a rematch with Duke.
The first-year women's basketball coach at Michigan will lead her new squad against the Blue Devils on Nov. 28 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Duke beat Barnes Arico's St. John's team, 74-47, in the Sweet Sixteen round of last season's NCAA Tournament.
The game will be played at the Crisler Center with a tip-off time to be determined at a later date, according to a Big Ten Conference release.
Duke, led by former Michigan State coach Joanne P. McCallie, was 27-6 last season and won its third straight ACC regular season title.
According to GoDuke.com, the Blue Devils will return four starters and 88.7 percent of their scoring next season.
The Wolverines and Blue Devils both have a 4-1 record in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Michigan lost 74-65 at No. 6-ranked Maryland last season.
