Duke (16-4, 7-2 ACC) has won three straight heading into this rivalry showdown and was last seen downing Virginia Tech in a 77-67 road victory on Monday. Meanwhile, North Carolina (17-4, 9-1 ACC) suffered its first setback in conference play on Tuesday, getting edged in a 74-73 road loss at Georgia Tech on Tuesday.
