Duke and North Carolina Get Ready to Travel Tobacco Road

The fans at Cameron Indoor Stadium will the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils Wednesday night. This is the biggest rivalry in college basketball and it renews itself tonight. North Carolina leads the series 96-83. The teams split the regular-season games last year, with the home team winning each time. The Tar Heels won the rubber match in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ESPN LINE: Duke -10; O/U: 165.

Super-Frosh R.J. Barrett recorded the first triple-double by a Duke player in 13 years Saturday. He ended with 23 points, 11 rebounds and a season-best 10 assists in the Blue Devils’ 94-78 victory over North Carolina State. North Carolina bounced back from its home loss to No. 3 Virginia two games ago. They came up with the most lopsided conference road win in program history in smacking Wake Forest 95-57 on Saturday.

This, That, and a Dart Throw

The North Carolina Tar Heels are 20-5 overall and 10-2 in the ACC. Leading scorer Cameron Johnson pours in 16.3 points per game. He had 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting, including 7-of-10 from long range. He also chipped in with three rebounds, three assists and three steals Saturday. Luke Maye and Coby White each added 10 points as 13 Tar Heels recorded points in the blowout. North Carolina shot 62.3 percent from the floor. They were an amazing 74.1% in the first half. They also show 64% from the 3-point line. That is a program record for any road game in which they attempted 20 or more 3s.

The Duke Blue Devils are 23-2 overall and 11-1 in the ACC. Barrett continues to lead the ACC in scoring at 22.7 points per game. Zion Williamson’s 32-point outburst against N.C. State has him closing in on Barrett. He is now averaging 22.4 points. Tre Jones added 13 points. The Blue Devils were able to score 94 despite shooting only 3-of-16 from the 3-point line. Duke dominated on the glass against the Wolfpack, winning the rebounding battle 44-26. The Blue Devils sit second in the conference at 42.2 rebounds per game, just behind North Carolina’s 42.5
