These bitter rivals will be meeting one last time this year with huge stakes at hand.

Duke vs. UNC Final Four prediction
Even though college basketball fans are guaranteed one blue-blood vs. another for the national championship, the hype behind this national semifinal will be unrivaled. These two teams absolutely hate each other. Expect for emotions to run high and the refs to absolutely play a massive part in how this game shakes out with the loser being so unbelievably bitter about it.
Ultimately, the best player on the floor in this game plays for Duke in Paolo Banchero. Factor in UNC spoiling Coach K’s final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium and you better believe the Blue Devils will have an extra gear the Tar Heels just will not be able to get to. Oh, this game will go down to the wire, but look for Coach K’s career to end on the biggest of stages Monday night.
Prediction: Duke 71, UNC 66.
