ACC Tournament Schedule 2017: Duke Advances To Face UNC In Semifinals

The Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels will get to run it back one more time in the semifinals of the 2017 ACC Tournament.

On Thursday, Duke rallied from 12-points back — in large part due to a late game offensive explosion from Luke Kennard — to defeat No. 4 seed Louisville in the quarterfinals.

The win set up a meeting with the rival Tar Heels in the tournament semifinals.

This will mark the third meeting between the programs this season, with each team winning the game on their home court.

In their first meeting on Feb. 9, Duke topped North Carolina, 86-78, at Cameron Indoor Stadium. UNC returned the favor on March 4, earning a 90-83 victory at Dean Smith Center.

This time around, the stakes are even higher and bragging rights will be on the line as they square off on a neutral court.

Tip-off for Duke vs. UNC on Friday, March 10 is set for 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
