Carolina. Duke. Round Three. For a trip to the championship.

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-North Carolina vs Miami Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

We meet again. The Tar Heels are looking to advance into the ACC Tournament championship game tomorrow evening, but they’ll need to settle the score with Duke to get there. Carolina beat the Blue Devils at the Smith Center to close out the regular season.

The advantage UNC has over Duke is that they have only had to play one game so far in the tournament. Duke is playing their third game in as many days. For a team with as little depth as Duke has, that seems like a safe bet to start being a real issue at some point. Hopefully that point is tonight.

With the season series being split so far with each team winning at home, UNC will be looking to get some revenge against Duke for the last time the two met in the ACC Tournament. Will the neutral floor be kind to the Heels? Tar Heel fans do travel extremely well, but the northeast is a hotbed of misguided Duke supporters. Light blue should still be well-represented.

The game will be on ESPN and the ACC Network tonight at 7:00 pm ET.

Go Heels!
