Duke will host Purdue as its part of the Big Ten/ACC Women’s Basketball Challenge in December, the Blue Devils being the only local team to get a home game.

The contest will be played on Dec. 1 at Cameron Indoor Stadium, one night after UNC plays at Penn State and N.C. State visits Northwestern.

Other Nov. 30 contests will have Boston College at Wisconsin, Nebraska at Georgia Tech, Michigan at Maryland, Florida State at Ohio State and Virginia Tech at Iowa. Thursday’s other games will be Illinois at Clemson, Miami at Michigan State, Indiana at Virginia and Minnesota at Wake Forest.

The ACC has won all four previous Challenge titles, including six of 11 games last season.

This season all 12 ACC teams will participate instead of one having to sit out, as the Big Ten’s addition of Nebraska means the conferences now have an equal number of teams.
