It is that time again where Roy Williams' North Carolina squad goes head to head with their hated rival in Coach's Duke Blue Devils!
No matter what their records or standings in the ACC this match up is extremely heated and has been the best rivalry in college basketball for a long time.
This season both UNC and Duke come into this match up at #3 and #5 rankings in the Top 25 and both atop the ACC with North Carolina leading the way. This game will be huge not just for the winner's confidence, but it will also have a big implications on both the Top 25 rankings and their position in the ACC conference.
North Carolina comes in as the clear favorite as they are playing as good as any team in the country right now with a seven game winning streak and all their stars like Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson playing at the top of their game.
Duke on the other hand has stumble a little bit as of late after losing to Wake Forest and then a again losing to Clemson in an embarrassing 27 point loss. The Blue Devils are still a one of the best teams in college basketball, but if they don't get it together they fall fast in both the ACC and Top 25.
