Duke vs North Carolina live

North Carolina will battle it out on the hardwood on Thursday night for bragging rights to Tobacco Road in one of the best rivalries in all of college basketball.

Duke (19-4) enters the game having lost two of its last three, including a baffling loss to hapless St. John’s last Saturday. But the Blue Devils have been stellar overall for much of the season including wins on its NCAA Tournament resume over Michigan State, Florida, Miami and others. A win here over the Tar Heels would undeniably qualify as its best road win of the season.

Duke, North Carolina lacks a reliable creator outside of Berry. And as mentioned earlier, Berry has been inconsistent. He’s shooting a career-worst 39 percent from the floor and is making a modest 36 percent of his 3s.

. Even open off-the-bounce 3s aren’t easy, and a shooter lacking conviction probably won’t make them. But Berry is a generally confident dude who has perked up as of late — he scored 27 points against Clemson and is 7-for-15 from 3 in his last two games. This is a prime opportunity for the North Carolina captain to regain his 2016-17 form.

Kenny Williams is a great spot-up shooter, but he won’t give the Tar Heels much off the dribble. Theo Pinson can create, but he’s not the multi-dimensional threat Berry is.

Duval has the athleticism and lateral agility to frustrate Berry. This is a mindset/tactical issue, not a physical one. Lately, Duke has started games in man before flipping to zone.
