The North Carolina and Duke men’s basketball programs have faced each other a total of 256 times, with Tar Heels equaling a 141-game winning streak against Blue Devil’s 115.

These teams met in what was supposed to be the last game of Coach K’s career near the end of the regular season. They last met on March 5, where Tar Heels beat Krzyzewski’s final home game against North Carolina with a 94-81 victory.

The Blues have been on fire since entering the tournament, as the team’s momentum helped Krzyzewski prepare to retire with his sixth national championship.
