Fans can watch the Duke vs. North Carolina basketball game live online as the teams face with Duke trying to end the season perfect at home.
The No. 4 Blue Devils have been unstoppable at the Cameron Indoor Stadium this year, and a win over UNC would allow them to wrap up an incredible 18th perfect season at home.
But North Carolina has been one of Duke’s toughest opponents at home, and in fact the No. 14 Tar Heels were the last team to go into Durham and win.
The game between Duke and North Carolina is set to tip off at 9 pm and has implications for the ACC tournament. Both Duke and UNC have already wrapped up double-byes into the quarterfinals of the tournament next week, but Duke can secure the No. 3 spot with a win. The Tar Heels can clinch the No. 2 seed with a win and a loss by No. 7 Syracuse on Sunday.
Fans who watch the Duke vs. North Carolina basketball game live online will see a Duke team that just suffered a tough defeat to Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons had lost eight of their last nine games, but took control of the contest thanks to a 17-0 run late in the game.
The game was eerily similar to Duke’s last contest against UNC, when the Tar Heels erased an 11 point deficit with 15 minutes remaining thanks to 13 straight missed field goals by Duke.
North Carolina is looking for its 13th straight victory, though not all have been pretty.
“I said Saturday to have a really good year you’ve got to win some games ugly,” coach Roy Williams said. “I’m tired of winning games ugly.”
