Last Meeting

The UNC basketball program lost each of the two meetings a season ago, as the last meeting resulted in a 62-57 loss at the Dean Smith Center on March 4, 2023.

Armando Bacot, RJ Davis and Caleb Love combined for 45 of the Tar Heels 57 points, as the team as a whole shot a disappointing 30.4% from the floor. That includes massive struggles from beyond the arc, as the UNC basketball program connected on just five of 23 attempts from deep.

Kyle Filipowski led all scorers with 23 points, as Duke had four players score in double-figures.
