Wednesday February 17th, 2016

Fifth–ranked North Carolina will host No. 20 Duke in the Tobacco Road rivalry on Wednesday night.

Fresh off a buzzer–beater, upset victory over No. 7 Virginia, the Blue Devils will be looking to continue gaining ground in the rankings against their in-state rival. Duke fell out of the AP Top 25 Poll for the first time in almost a decade two weeks ago, but consecutive wins over Georgia Tech, NC State, Louisville and Virginia have given Coach K’s team a boost.

The Tar Heels dropped two games to Louisville and Notre Dame to start the month, but showed their resilience with wins over Boston College and Pittsburgh. The Blue Devils have won seven of the last nine meetings between these two teams, but UNC looks like it could be poised to break Duke’s three-game winning streak in the series.
