One of the best rivalry games in any sport takes place on Thursday night.
The Tar Heels make the nine mile trip over to Duke to take on the Blue Devils.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. Duke has won four of the last five match ups.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels might be the best team in all of the land. Roy Williams has a team that once again looks like they will make a lot of noise in March.
North Carolina comes into this rivalry game with a 21-4 record and sit in first place in the ACC.
The Tar Heels are 9-1 in their last ten games. In those nine wins they didn’t ever score below 83 points. In five of those wins they scored about 90 points.
The Tar Heels are led by Justin Jackson. He averages 18.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
For North Carolina to win they need to get off to a fast start. They are playing in one of the loudest arenas in the country and if they get down early that will just feed the “Duke Crazies.”
Duke Blue Devils
The Duke Blue Devils have had a disappointing season so far, but they seem to be playing much better basketball as of late.
The Blue Devils come into this game with an 18-5 record and sit in 6th place in the ACC. They come into this game having won three straight including a big win over Notre Dame.
This game is a big measuring stick to see if Duke is really back, or if they will just end up having a mediocre season this year.
Duke is led by Luke Kennard. He averages 19.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. He shoots over 45 percent from behind the arc.
For Duke to win they need to be the team getting out to the fast start. They need to use the crowd to their advantage and really put UNC out of it early.
