Just another game. Try telling that to anyone involved in the rivalry. North Carolina came in unranked and on the proverbial NCAA bubble, but the Tar Heels gave Duke everything it could handle on its home floor. The Blue Devils came out on top, but desperately miss senior Ryan Kelly.
Mason Plumlee didn't hesitate when talking about Duke teammate Ryan Kelly's injury situation. It was just one word, but it may have been a telling one regarding the confidence he has that his fellow senior will return to the court.
