Three of the four basketball games that Duke will play during its promotional tour of China and Dubai, departing on Sunday, will be televised. So FC, of course, wondered about the fourth.
The games on TV: August 18 in Shanghai, August 22 in Beijing and August 25 in Dubai.
The stations: ESPNU, ESPN3.
The missing game is the first on August 17 in Kunshan. Why? It's a backwater and there is no possible TV link according to ESPN. FC confirmed that with the satellite desk at CBS News.
GoDuke.com will make video of all the games and make a condensed versions available on line; we do not know precisely when these videos will be edited and available.
The team departs Sunday.
