"Our game with Duke at BB&T Ballpark is a great way to continue our relationship with the Knights as it will be the third time in the last four years we will be involved in a game in their great ballpark," stated Cooke. He added, "And, with Duke's head coach, Chris Pollard, being a former player and coach at Davidson - and a close friend - I'm confident we will have a great crowd that evening."
