Duke vs. UNC: TV info and how to watch on ESPN

If you thought the stakes were high when the then-No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels visited the then-No. 1 Duke Blue Devilson Feb. 20 -- an 88-72 UNC win -- then you're going to want to tune in for Game No. 2 on Saturday, March 9, when a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament could be on the line.

Plenty has happened since that February game, which saw Duke's star freshmanZion Williamsonleave early with a knee sprain. Williamson hasn't played since, and while Duke has gone 3-1 since then, it has struggled without him. Carolina, meanwhile, has won six straight games and has lost just once since Jan. 13.

The Blue Devils visit the Tar Heels in this ACC rivalry game on ESPN at 6 p.m. ET Saturday.

With Williamson out, fellow freshmenRJ Barretthas stepped up for Duke, while Carolina has a star freshman of its own leading the charge inCoby White.
