The Victory Formation:
Just in case you forgot, and if you watch ESPN you haven’t, the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels renew their rivalry tonight at 9pm. Anyway, the rivalry is a big one, just that is really doesn’t matter nationally this year. Being that these teams hate one another, that means some good old fashion pranking was going to happen prior to game time. UNC student pulled a good one. School mascots are sacred, and that is exactly why the Tar Heels stole the head off Duke’s mascot, and stuck it to a poll above the student store. According to reports, the Chapel Hill police are in custody of the head with full intention of returning it to Duke. Just no word if it will be before game time tonight. Been a rough season for the Tar Heels, but an upset of #2 Duke could be a nice consolation prize. H/T Game On!

The Duke Blue Devils mounted a second half comeback to beat rival North Carolina 73-68 in the first of two meetings between the schools. And though Duke, who is ranked #4 in the country and at home, was expected to beat an unranked UNC squad, Duke students still felt that the win warranted them storming the court.
Unfortunately for them, Mike Krzyzewski had other ideas and stopped...
Seth Curry's mom, Sonya Curry, stole the show during the Duke vs North Carolina basketball game on Wednesday night.
Duke's Mason Plumlee said that Quinn Cook was the team's rock in the first half.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- With its star big man on the bench with foul trouble, Duke went small to beat its top rival -- and one of its smallest players came up big.
The run that propelled the second-ranked Blue Devils to a 73-68 victory over North Carolina on Wednesday night started when Mason Plumlee sat down and backup guard Tyler Thornton warmed up.
"I think the hero for us...
Quinn Cook and Mason Plumlee scored 18 points each as Duke moved to 22-2 on the season with a five point victory over North Carolina on Wednesday night.
I can't figure out why ACC fans, who don't root for Duke, are sad that Seth Curry is a senior.
