College basketball fans will be treated to Round 3 on Friday night as the Duke Blue Devils will square off against the North Carolina Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament semifinals.
The storyline everybody will be talking about is the return of Zion Williamson, who will essentially have his first taste of this legendary clash. As we know, UNC won the previous two matchups this season.

Williamson returned to the court on Thursday night for the first time in a month and it's fair to say that his knee is doing just fine. The freshman phenom simply shut down Syracuse, scoring 29 points on 13-for-13 shooting to go along with 14 rebounds and 5 steals.
He was 9-of-9 at halftime while the rest of his teammates combined to shoot 22.2 percent (4-for-18). Even Zion will need A LOT more help against a UNC team that has had his teammates' numbers this year.
Roy Williams’s squad shot 46.2 percent (30-65) from the floor and 35 percent (7-20) from deep in UNC's 83-70 victory in the quarterfinals on Thursday against Louisville. They'll look to continue that efficiency against the high-energy Blue Devils defense.
The Tar Heels lead the all-time series, 139-111 and this marks the third year in a row in which the school's have met in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament.
