    Some consider it the best rivalry in sports, it's certainly top 5. So who ya got tonight? The Heels have been playing much better since benching Larry Drew, who subsequently quit the team last week. UNC is ranked 21st and Duke is 5th. Also the game is in Durham wherer Carolina lost by 32 last year.

    I'm a diehard Carolina fan, I get sick when they lose, but I think Duke will probably win tonight.

    Sports Illustrated (2 years ago, I think) said it was no longer even the best rivalry in college basketball, that it had been replaced by Tennessee/Memphis and was even underneath Cincinnati/Xavier since the schools are much closer.

    That said, it's still a huge game, and I like Duke to sweep the series.

    It is by far the biggest rivalry in college basketball. The schools are 8 miles apart. CU and Xavier are 4 miles apart. To even bring up Tennessee and Memphis is laughable.
