Duke vs. UNC: Live updates, results and highlights from historic rivalry | NCAA Basketball
Tobacco Road bragging rights, ACC titles hopes and NCAA seeding ramifications are all on the line in the 250th meeting between Duke and North Carolina.
A UNC win ensures the Tar Heels of a least a share of the ACC crown with Virginia, while a loss to Duke could give a piece of the crown to the Blue Devils — should Virginia trip up against Louisville.
The season’s first matchup was filled with drama as Duke’s Zion Williamson suffered a knee injury when his shoe gave out fewer than 40 seconds into the game. North Carolina coasted to an easy 88-72 victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Blue Devil coach Mike Krzyzewski confirmed Saturday morning that Zion would miss his fifth straight game but should be ready for the ACC Tournament.
