UNC Basketball: 5 hardest games on 2014-15 schedule

4 of 6

3. vs. Duke on March 7th at 6:00 or 9:00 p.m.

This game needs no introduction. The Duke game in Chapel Hill will be the final one on the Tar Heel’s regular season schedule in 2014-15. The ACC regular season title could hang in the balance when these two teams tip off and the Tar Heel faithful will be ready to provide a true home court advantage for the Tar Heels.

Duke lost two key pieces from last season’s squad that was the third seed of the Midwest regional in the NCAA tournament in Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood. Hood and Parker were both first round draft picks in the NBA Draft this June and Coach K will be replacing them with more potential first rounders from his top ranked recruiting class. Jahil Okafor and Tyus Jones headline the class that will mesh with returning veterans like Marshall Plumlee and Rasheed Sulaimon. This game will be an exciting battle of two potential Final Four teams come April.

The good news with this game is that its in March, so it doesn’t look like there will be any snow in the forecast. Duke should have no trouble getting over to Chapel Hill this time.
