On Thursday evening, the rivalry between the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels will be renewed once again as they’ll take the floor against one another inside the Dean Dome in Chapel Hill.

With the first scheduled meeting supposed to be played a few weeks ago but having been postponed due to inclement wintry weather, the tension between these rivals have been building even further.

And, those tensions don’t end with just the players on the court neither.

On the Tar Heels campus in Chapel Hill, it appears that some Duke supporters decided to test their artistic skills with some spray paint cans to show their loyalty to the Blue Devils.

Now, practices like this are never condoned and there is no evidence that these were done by anyone directly affiliated with Duke University, but once again it’s a staunch reminder of just how fierce this rivalry can be.

The Blue Devils and Tar Heels will go at it on the floor Thursday evening at 9 PM ET
