It only makes sense that these two teams should play in the ACC Tournament. North Carolina won both of the regular season matchups. Obviously, Zion Williamson's shoe blew up in the first one and he didn't play in the second contest, so it remains to be seen what these teams will look like with both at full strength. Thankfully, we get to see that tonight.
It's no doubt that Duke is one of the best teams in the country when Williamson is on the floor. He didn't miss a single shot in last night's win over Syracuse, scoring 29 points while hauling in rebounds, posting massive dunks and blocking shots.
This will be the third straight year Duke and Carolina have met in the ACC Tournament semifinals. They split those games, but this matchup will mark the first time two Top 5 teams will meet in the ACC semifinals. Duke and North Carolina both have 101 all-time victories in ACC tournament play, the most of any school in the event.
