The 1992-93 Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team represented Duke University in the 1992-93 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The head coach was Mike Krzyzewski[1] and the team finished the season with an overall record of 24-8.[2]

The Blue Devils entered the season looking to win their third consecutive national championship and entered the season as the #3 team in preseason polling. They reached #1 in the polls on December 7, 1992, and stayed there for five consecutive weeks as the Blue Devils won their first ten games. A loss to Georgia Tech on January 10, 1993, ended their streak and knocked them from #1.

Duke finished the regular season at 23-6 but was eliminated by Georgia Tech in the opening round of the ACC Tournament.[3] They earned a #3 seed in the Midwest Region, falling to California in the second round of the tournament.

The loss to California was the last game for Bobby Hurley at Duke, as he was graduating.
