UNC-Duke Rivalry Heats Back Up After Snow Day

Last week's winter storm canceled the men's basketball game between fierce rivals North Carolina and Duke. 

Meetings between coaches, athletic directors and the Atlantic Coast Conference resulted in the contest being rescheduled for this Thursday night in Chapel Hill.  That means both teams will be playing four games in eight days. 

The Tar Heels beat Pittsburgh over the weekend while the Blue Devils got past Maryland.  Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski told Sirius-XM it's a challenging week.

“We play on Tuesday night at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, play in Chapel Hill on Thursday at nine o'clock and then come back and play Saturday night at seven against Syracuse,” Coach K said.

Carolina plays Florida State tonight, hosts Duke Thursday and turns around to play Wake Forest Saturday.  Game time Thursday night is 9:00.
