DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Krzyzewski and his Duke basketball team will practice at Fort Bragg.

School officials said Thursday that the Blue Devils will train and practice there on Oct. 15. The team will spend the previous night in barracks and will take part in morning formations and physical training along with roughly 20 soldiers.

The training will include a 2-mile run and will be led by a sergeant major from the fort, which is home to the 82nd Airborne Division and the XVIII Airborne Corps. The Blue Devils also will complete an obstacle course before practicing for two hours.

Krzyzewski played at Army in the late 1960s and coached there before coming to Duke in 1980. He says it will be "a unique experience"

Duke holds its first practice Oct. 12.
