This will be the first-ever NCAA Tournament meeting between North Carolina and Duke. The two rivals have played 257 times previously, but never on a stage like this.
Both Duke and North Carolina won on the road in this season’s series. The Tar Heels’ win was a stunner, as it spoiled Mike Krzyzewski’s last home game in Durham.
North Carolina is competing in its 21st Final Four, which is the most all-time. UCLA is second with 18 trips to the Final Four.
Hubert Davis is the first coach since Bill Guthrdige in 1998 to reach the Final Four in his first season.
North Carolina and Duke will tipoff shortly after Villanova-Kansas on Saturday night.
