When the Maryland Terrapins take the court against the Duke Blue Devils  on February 15th at Cameron Indoor, it’ll likely be the last time we ever see the two teams play – outside of the tournament.

That’s according to Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski who recently told ESPN 980 that Duke has no plans to schedule a game against Maryland ever again once they leave the ACC for the Big Ten after the 2013-14 season.

Per the Washington Post:

“The quality of athlete on the court and then the atmosphere that they were able to play in really brought out some special moments,” Coach K agreed, discussing the Duke-Maryland games of the late ’90s and early 2000s. “You can’t just say you’re going to replicate that in another conference right away. That was already there. It was established over a period of time, and that won’t happen again. That’s not gonna happen again, because we’re not gonna schedule them. It’s tough to schedule anybody when you have 18 conference games. But when we schedule non-conference, it’s usually outside of our conference area, so that we play national teams.”

    In a few years when Coach K is gone and Duke is mediocre, Maryland won’t be missing them.
