Tale of the tape
Tobacco Road Rivalry Round 2: #3 Duke Vs. UNC
|Duke’s win on Senior Night on Tuesday against Virginia Tech was Mike Krzyzewski’s 880th at Duke, moving him into second place for most all time for a coach at a single school.||Coaching||Carolina earned a nice road win at Maryland on Wednesday; they've now won six in a row heading into the rematch with their arch-rival. The Heels would tie Duke for second in the ACC with a win.|
|Ryan Kelly is back, and so Duke’s offense looks even better. After an unbelievable performance against Miami in his return, the senior forward scored 18 against Virginia Tech.||Offense||Carolina grabbed 18 offensive boards in the first meeting with Duke, which helped them keep pace despite subpar shooting. Reggie Bullock has been on fire lately.|
|Duke’s defense has been better this season with Kelly as well. They showed some adjustments in the rematch with Miami and were solid, especially in the second half, on Tuesday.||Defense||The Heels have been playing better defensively of late. They lead the league in forced turnovers in conference play, and rarely foul.|
|Amile Jefferson has gotten very little playing time since Kelly’s return, so Duke is basically seven deep. This team relies on its starters to play significant minutes.||Bench Depth||Leslie McDonald is a decent reserve, but no other Tar Heel has seen significant minutes in recent games. The bench provided nothing in the first match-up.|
The winner is
