The Gopher men's basketball team will play Duke on Thanksgiving Day on November 22 in the quarterfinals at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.  The Gophers last played Duke in 1989 in the sweet sixteen round of the NCAA tournament.  Minnesota lost that game.

The other teams playing in the tournament in the Bahamas this year are Missouri, Stanford, Memphis, Virginia Commonwealth, Louisville and Northern Iowa.
