What do you know? For the second time in seven days, Duke and North Carolina are set to face-off. And this time, a berth in the ACC Title Game is on the line.
Both teams held serve at home in their two meetings this season. Duke won at Cameron Indoor Stadium 86-78, while the Tar Heels took care of business in Chapel Hill 90-83 this past Saturday.
The rubber match will take place in Brooklyn before a capacity crowd at the Barclays Center, as the ACC’s grand experiment to bring their conference tournament to New York continues.
As for NCAA Tournament implications? North Carolina may well lock in its spot on the one line with a win on Friday night over the Blue Devils. While Duke with Friday and Saturday wins could perhaps play themselves into a No. 2 seed.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET. ESPN has the coverage. The game will also be streamed online, via WatchESPN, free with a cable subscription. The Watch ESPN app can be downloaded from the iTunes, the Google Play store, and the Windows store.
