Predictions for Duke @ UNC?

Just don't see UNC having enough inside game + Paige to counter Duke's plethora of perimeter scorers (the 3, in particular). Will be tough for the Heels to keep it under 10 unless McDonald is really on.

I forgot to give a final.....Duke 84 UNC 78

Duke is playing some of the best ball in the country right now, and UNC is playing like they were when they were beating Michigan State and Louisville. If UNC allows Duke to hit a ton of threes, they have little chance of stopping Duke. But, if they can play great perimeter defense and control the glass, Duke could be in for a long night. I imagine we will see Sulaimon on Paige, so that looks to be a great match-up to watch.
The real rivalry is Wednesday, and I am just excited for it to get here. Let's hope the weather doesn't affect the game in any way.

Hardly ever a blowout. I say Duke by 5

There are a ton of variables in this game. UNC has the advantage in talent along the baseline and Duke has better guards. UNC is so up and down its hard to predict what they will do, but if they get out quickly and get the crowd involved they can win this game. I give a slight edge to Duke, as they have the best two players on the floor and an edge in coaching.

A month ago I would have called for a Duke blowout...stop Paige and McAdoo and unc has nothing. But this is Feb. Johnson, Mcdonald, and Meeks have finally blended in to give the heels a solid, well balanced 5. That being said, Duke will still win this game(with or without the 3's falling) by using a deeper, dangerous bench and DEFENSIVE intensity. Expect Hood to be in McAdoo's face all night long and any number of Duke guards harassing Paige.
Not a blowout. Duke by 8
