As Duke gets ready to play this week in and around Toronto, here are some notes.

First, here’s what has.

Here’s the official Ryerson page - Duke plays them on Wednesday. It hasn’t been updated for the season completely - there’s no roster for one thing - but some info is useful.

Here’s the official page for McGill.

Here’s the official page for the University of Toronto as well.

Game days and times:

  • Wednesday: Ryerson 7:00 Paramount Fine Foods Centre
  • Friday: Toronto 6:00 Paramount Fine Foods Centre
  • Sunday: McGill 3:00 Place Bell, Montreal

Sunday’s game is obviously a good bit further away (five and half hours) so if you’re traveling factor it in. We will say that Canadian highways are very well maintained and pleasant to drive and (most) of the drivers have good Canadian manners too. It’s a pleasant trip across some gorgeous land. On the downside, gas is a good bit more expensive.

This is important: all three games will be on ESPN+ and you will probably have to $ign up to get that.

However, they are offering a free week so you can sign up Tuesday (in case you have any hassles you have time to fix it) then cancel after Sunday’s game.

When Duke gets back, there are other things to think about.
