As for Duke, they are looking to earn a share of the regular season title, and with various different tiebreakers, they could end up being the #1 seed in the ACC Tournament next week.

Carolina won the first matchup in Chapel Hill, 93-84 behind a great performance from Armando Bacot, who registered a 25-point, 10 rebounds, 5 assists night.
