Rivalry night in college hoops features UNC vs Duke, ECU vs UAB

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Its perhaps the biggest rivalry in all of sports, Duke versus North Carolina. The Tar Heels travel down Tobacco Road to face the Blue Devils Wednesday at Cameron Indoor. It will be the 235th time the two ACC rivals have hooked up (UNC leads the all-time series 132-102).

UNC comes off a devastating loss at Miami while No. 2 ranked Duke comes off a close win at Wake Forest. UNC has won 6 of the last 7 in Durham.

Everyone in the state is talking about the big matchup, including East Carolina players and coaches who have a Conference USA game against UAB Wednesday. Reporters asked ECU Coach Jeff Lebo, who played at North Carolina in the 80's, if UNC had a shot tonight; "Are you kidding me," said Lebo. "I'm not saying it's going to be easy, but we got a few wins there when I was there."

East Carolina faces UAB at Minges Coliseum as the Pirates look for the season sweep of the Blazers. ECU beat UAB 91-85 last month in Birmingham.
