Round one of the BEST dang rivalry in all of college basketball is taking place in Chapel Hill next weekend. dook is traveling fifteen minutes down the road to challenge one of the top team's in the country in conference play. Hope their bus driver does not get lost...

You college basketball fan's out there that are other team's always argue that this is NOT the greatest rivalry in all of college basketball, well I am here to tell you that you are wrong, dead wrong! Here in North Carolina we wait for this day, talk about it off and on all year long. These games get television coverage on every national venue. There is no bigger rivalry. You can whine and complain all you like, please, spare me. dook and Carolina, have it all against y'all. The school's are a mere fifteen minutes distance apart on 15-501. Even if the bus did break down, the players would still make the game. Carolina fans smell the stench coming from Durham and vice-versa.

This is a love hate rivalry. For me, I love to banter with my dook fans, give them crap as much as I can, and well I expect the same from them. We have fun year round, razzing each other and reminiscing. But with most of our fans, there is a little something different that underlies this rivalry, it is the simple respect for the rivalry, yes some do take it too far...but for most of us, we take the rivalry in the spirit in which it is intended...

Now, for dook's take on the game...Psycho T is going to have some REVENGE for his nose getting busted...and the evil player he knows who he is, plays for the rat king's evil empire...better tread lightly Sunday!!!!!!!



GO Tar Heels! beat dook!

I agree. The UNC/DUKE rivalry is the best . But not just in college basketball. THE BEST IN SPORTS. Better than Yankees/Red Sox. Better than Alabama/ Auburn. Better than Army/Navy. Better than Dallas/Redskins. Better than Rangers/Boston Bruins. The best. Hands down!!!

   If Carolina plays like they did against Maryland, Duke will win by 20,  but I dont see that happening.  I see Duke coming out and trying to play rough, real shock there, and giving the Tar Heels some problems early, but then Ginyard and Green lay down the law and start a huge run by UNC that see's them run the score up to 75-60 and then Duke makes a strong run to pull within six only to lose by about nine, something like 93-84.  Then in the second game, UNC crushes Duke 103 to 57 and several Dook players wet themselves at half time and refuse to come out  for the second half unless Psycho-T says that, "wetting yourself is the coolest" and splashes water on his shorts to prove it. Then coach K, the rat that he is, will say, "if peeing your pants is cool consider me Miles Davis."  But thats how I see it, and I could be wrong, at least about the final score of the first game goes anyway, thats about it, everything else is probably spot on.

The best rivalry in college hoops is Duke v. UNC.  As a big CBB fan I just can't think of anything that comes close. 

As a MD fan I like to go in there and steal a win every once in a while but those to teams are tough year in and year out!! (With the exception of the one season for UNC).

The rivalry is a happy and healthy one and amazes me the electricity all over the RAleigh-Durham/Chapel Hill area when the game is close.  I have been fortunate enough to experience it.  The energy you see on TV is no where near the level it is in real life.

I have to admit I HATE Duke....Go UNC!!

Syracuse vs. Georgetown has to be up there .... But Syracuse should have won round 1 of 2 ... cheap loss for us.

But yes UNC/ Duke is the top rivalry in college basketball.

P.S To the dude who said Duke, Kansas, NC, and Uk were the top 4 teams in college basketball......Hey....ever heard of UCLA?  Why would Kentucky be considered one of the top 4 teams in college basketball?

You better put down whatever you're smoking.

I agree that Duke vs. N.C. is probably the best college basketball rivalry.  Being a Terp fan and an ACC fan I certainly have had a lot of exposure to both teams and Maryland's top two rivals are Duke and the Tar heels.  In fact the Maryland game tonight vs. Duke should be a good one, and my apologies for last weeks defeat of the Tar heels.
