Thursday, February 08, 2007

Fifth-ranked North Carolina and No. 16 Duke had stumbled into this front end of their annual blood rivalry at Cameron Indoor Stadium Wednesday night. The Tar Heels had lost their previous game and Duke was riding a two-game losing streak that had led to a precipitous drop in its rankings. So what does North Carolina’s 79-73 victory mean? The Tar Heels (21-3) are back. And Duke (18-6) is reeling. (New York Times)
