ESPN GameDay coming to Duke on March 6

Duke has announced its plans for the ESPN College GameDay crew's appearance on campus on March 6, when the Blue Devils will play host to North Carolina at 9 p.m.

ESPN will air live, one-hour segments beginning at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. in preparation for the game and the day in college basketball.

Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Digger Phelps, Hubert Davis and Bob Knight will do the morning show inside Cameron Indoor Stadium and the evening show outside the arena. Doors will open to the public at 9:30 a.m. for the morning show, and Duke is encouraging fans to arrive early because ESPN's SportsCenter will be doing live cut-ins at Cameron from 10 to 11 a.m.

The public will enter from the South entrance, and Duke's students will enter through the North lobby. Parking will be available in campus lots beginning at 8:30 a.m., with the exception of the Public Policy Lot. Cars must be moved out by 2 p.m.
