The Jordan Brand Classic, which will be played on April 8 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, will give Duke fans a preview of the quartet before next season. The incoming Blue Devils class is ranked No. 1 in the country, according to 247Sports. Duke has had the top class in the country for three straight seasons.

North Carolina signees Nassir Little and Coby White will play on the “Away” team at the Jordan Brand Classic.
