Video: UNC students pull their own version of Duke prank

Ahead of the first Duke-UNC match-up this season, Duke students made their way onto their rival’s campus and somehow tricked young Tar Heels into praising the Blue Devils. Saturday the schools again square off, and a couple brave UNC broadcasting students decided to repay the favor.

The two lady Tar Heels posed as Blue Devils students and quizzed their fake peers on the slumps of imaginary players, and the effect of a fake “inner ear problem” that Grayson Allen has come down with.

Who did it better? They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

UNC and Duke both cap their seasons against each other at Cameron Indoor Saturday, March 5 at 6:30 pm EST. The game will be broadcast on ESPN. Roy Williams and the Tar Heels come in ranked no. 8, while Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils are ranked no. 17 as both teams prepare for the ACC tournament.
