Former Duke standout and 2014 NBA All-Star game MVP Kyrie Irving will return to Durham to serve as a coach for K Academy XII (May 28 – June 1). Irving will be joined at America's first and top-rated college fantasy basketball camp by nearly 30 other former Blue Devil basketball players, including stars for the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 2010’s.

“I am excited to come back to Duke to coach at the K Academy,” said Irving. “It is a fun event to be a part of and a great opportunity to reconnect with my Duke family. I am also looking forward to coaching and getting to know the campers, who are some of the top performers in their respective fields of expertise. K Academy is a great basketball experience and an amazing look into the Duke culture.”

The K Academy brings team-building techniques into an once-in-a-lifetime experience for the ultimate Duke or college basketball fan. Every camper will spend five days in Cameron Indoor Stadium and in the premier practice facility in the country - the Krzyzewski Center for Academic & Athletic Excellence - where they'll go from opening day tryouts to Sunday's championship tournament. Along the way the campers will play games on Coach K Court in Cameron and learn the inside scoop on Duke's four-time national championship program.

A lively social program, including a charity auction benefiting Durham's Emily Krzyzewski Center, completes the experience. All campers reside in the four-star Washington Duke Inn & Golf Course on the Duke University campus.

The enrollment tuition for the K Academy continues to be $10,000. The Academy is partially tax-deductible as profits go to the Duke Basketball Legacy Fund. The camp has limited enrollment of 88 participants - 80 playing campers and eight non-playing bench captains.
