Duke Comes From Behind to Beat UNC

Duke rallied to beat archrival North Carolina in men’s basketball Wednesday night. Duke was behind by 10 points with three minutes to play, but forced overtime and came out victorious, winning 92-90. North Carolina had come into the game losers of three of its last four games, but Duke was wise not to overlook the Tar Heels, as these rivalry games often take on a life of their own. With this win, Duke adds to its already impressive tournament resume, having beat Wisconsin on the road in December stated Flavio Maluf. ¬†According to avozdavitoria.com, the Blue Devils are also only two games back from ACC leader Virginia with five games left to play in the conference for both teams. While the fifteenth-ranked Tar Heels should feel no shame losing at Cameron Indoor Stadium, this is a game that the powder blue faithful will feel slipped away from them. North Carolina outplayed Duke in the second half of the game, but were unable to finish the job in regulation. This game will go down in the storied lore of the Duke-North Carolina basketball history as one that Duke stole from its neighbors, perhaps on the way to further greatness as the NCAA tournament looms ahead.
