Every North Carolina-Duke game is big, but this one is big in a fairly unique way. Most years, the second matchup of the season is a crucial one for NCAA Tournament seeding. This one is a crucial one for either team making it.
Coming into tonight’s game, both UNC and Duke are seemingly right around the bubble. The general consensus is that the Tar Heels are on the right side of it while the Blue Devils would currently miss the tournament. It won’t decide either teams’ fate in final as the ACC Tournament is still to come, but neither team has much room for error. This is going to be important.
