We’ve reached that pivotal point in the college basketball season. It’s time for the first of the two match ups between the eighth-ranked Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels inside the Dean Dome as the most popular rivalry in college basketball resumes.
Duke comes in with an overall record of 19-5 and are 8-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Coach K and the Blue Devils have won their last two games since that heartbreaking loss to the Syracuse Orange, and would love for nothing more than to keep that winning trend growing with a win over their most hated rival in their own house.
North Carolina comes in looking to make a statement with a win over a Top-10 Duke team at 16-7 overall and 6-4 in the ACC. They’re on a bit of a hot streak as of late, though, winning their last five games, and the sixth would certainly make that statement.
Here’s how you can watch all the action live on Wednesday between the Blue Devils and the Tar Heels:
