Duke will try to set world record versus UK

Duke will try to set a world record during its game against Kentucky on Sunday at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

It’s not an attendance record or a basketball record.

Nope. It’s a world record for the largest gathering of holiday sweaters.

A Duke athletics release said fans who wear a holiday sweater to the game will receive free admission. Fans decked out in holiday gear are told to go to the North Ticket Booth outside of Wallace Wade Stadium and Cameron Indoor to show off their sweater and receive a free ticket.
