How To Watch Duke vs North Carolina Live Free Reddit Men’s Basketball
The Duke Blue Devils men’s basketball team face the University of North Carolina Tar Heels in a clash of titans atop the ACC at the Dean Smith Center on Saturday, February 5 (2/5/2022).
It’s always a must-see, monumental event when Duke faces rival North Carolina, but Saturday’s clash between the Tar Heels and No. 3 Blue Devils will be among the most significant in the recent history of the storied rivalry. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is taking his team to the Dean Dome for the final time for a battle with big-time ACC and national implications.
North Carolina (16-6, 8-3 ACC) is on a four-game winning streak that has breathed life into its NCAA Tournament hopes and put it in the thick of the ACC title race. A win over the arch rival Blue Devils would be a potentially season-defining moment for first-year head coach Hubert Davis and his squad, which has shown flashes of offensive brilliance to go along with too many defensive lapses.
The No. 9 ranked Blue Devils lead the Atlantic Coast Conference with an 8-2 record, and are 18-3 overall. Duke is coming off a 57-43 win over Notre Dame, in which defense kept the fighting Irish at bay, and they out-rebounded their opponents by 10.
UNC is hot on Duke’s heels, with an 8-3 record in conference and 16-6 overall, making this one of the weekend’s can’t-miss college basketball affairs. The Tar Heels beat Louisville 90-83 on Tuesday, their 4th-straight win.
Duke (18-3, 8-2) enters the game alone atop the conference standings but will need a victory to keep that status as it tries to gain separation from a chunky chase pack that features the Tar Heels, Miami, Notre Dame and Wake Forest. With freshman phenom Paolo Banchero leading the way, this team looks capable of helping Krzyzewski end his career on a solid note following last season’s 13-11 season.
