The eighteenth-ranked Duke Blue Devils will look for a signature victory this season as they prepare to meet the eighth-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels in a huge Atlantic Coast Conference showdown set to be staged on Thursday at the Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina.

This is the first instalment of a two-game season series between the two powerhouses. They will meet again in the last game of their respective regular seasons. The two division rivals split the series last year with UNC winning the last contest but the Blue Devils had prevailed in the previous four games.

The Tar Heels are first in the ACC a game in front of Florida State and Virginia and 2.5 games ahead of Duke who is in sixth place. After their surprising loss to Miami last week, UNC won its next two games with the latest versus then 20th ranked Notre Dame last Sunday. They used an 8-0 late run in the second half to spoil a late rally by the Irish en route to 83-76 win.

After going through their worst stretch of the season losing 3 of 4 contests, the Blue Devils righted the ship with three straight victories including one against the Irish. Although the score doesn’t indicate it, Pittsburgh gave Duke all it could handle in their 72-64 match on Saturday. Neither team led by more than 6 points until the last 5 minutes when Duke pulled away for good.

BetOnline has the Duke listed as 2½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 161½.
