Ryan McGee ESPN Senior Writer 

Thursday night marked the 246th meeting between Duke and Carolina. The Heels now lead the series 136-110. Their last 100 games prior to tonight were split 50-50. Duke will try to even that back up on March 3rd at Cameron Indoor.

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Easiest way to explain this one, North Carolina's 82-78 win over Duke, is that the Tar Heels played harder (plus-6 in rebounding, 20 offensive rebounds), played smarter (tied a school record with two turnovers) and didn't panic after being shredded inside in the first half (outscored Duke 16-2 in the first four minutes of the second half).
