The No. 3-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels (25-5, 15-2) are coming in hot. They're winners of six straight and have tied Virginia at the top of the ACC standings. Luke Maye is coming off of a monster game against Boston College on Tuesday after posting 17 points and 20 rebounds in the conference win.
No. 4 Duke, on the other hand, has struggled since the loss of Zion. The Blue Devils (26-4, 14-3) have lost two of their past five games and were barely able to squeeze out a one-point victory over Wake Forest on Tuesday.

Zion should be ready to return in time for the ACC tournament. Coach K said that he would be surprised if he wasn't back by then, but at this point, everybody is unsure if he'll suit back up and risk his injury with the NBA right in front of him.
Nonetheless, get ready for this season's second installment of Duke-UNC!!
