Rivalry renewed: Duke and North Carolina get set to take center stage on Wednesday night in a rivalry that has provided so many memories.
Duke has made a recent surge to find themselves back in the Top 25 as they’ve rattled off 4 straight wins. As for the Tar Heels, they just keep on rolling as they sit atop the ACC Standings.
The Blue Devils have got through many speed bumps this season. After building a losing streak to knock themselves out of the Top 25, Duke had quite the reality check as it was even in jeopardy whether or not they would be a tournament team.
They’ve rebounded to win 4 straight games and capped it off with a buzzer beating dramatic win over the #7 Virginia Cavaliers last time out.
Duke’s Grayson Allen missed two free throws to push the lead to 3, and saw Virginia come down to hit a go ahead layup. Allen then responded with a buzzer beating leaner that banked off the glass to secure the Duke win.
Duke comes into this one dominating the head to head in this series. The Blue Devils have won 3 straight and 10 of 13 overall in the series.
The Blue Devils went into Chapel Hill last time these two teams met and knocked off UNC 84-77.
The script has flipped a bit heading into this one as it’s the Tar Heels who are favorite in this matchup.
North Carolina sits at 10-2 in the conference, 1 game up on Miami and Virginia as they head into this one. Typically it’s been Duke who has been ahead of them when these two teams meet, but the Blue Devils sit at 8-4, 2 games back. A win here could pretty much remove the Blue Devils from the a chance at the ACC Title.
UNC will bring a perfect 13-0 SU record at home into this one. The Tar Heels are putting up 87.2 points per game compared to the 66.9 they allow.
The Tar Heels had no problem in their previous game as they routed Pittsburgh in a game where they had 26 assists on 32 made field goals.
