There were plenty of highlights from the UNC basketball program's victory over rival Duke on Saturday night.

Of all the memorable moments, one easily secured the top spot.

Late in the second half, the Tar Heels were holding on to a eight point lead. With just under five minutes to play, North Carolina went inside to big man Armando Bacot, who made the bucket and drew a foul on Duke's Kyle Filipowski.

The reaction from Bacot, and the entire UNC basketball team, was simply priceless!

Bacot hit Filipowski with the "too small" gesture, as teammates Harrison Ingram and Cormac Ryan emphatically copied the gesture as the on-court players huddled after the play. When ESPN showed the bench shortly after, Bacot's teammates were also having some fun with it too, as they also joined in on the celebration.

Ingram has made the "too small" move a common one this season, as we've also seen Bacot use it from time to time. With the intensity of the game, along with the fact that Bacot suffered five chipped teeth as a result from an elbow from Filipowski, you can understand why the Tar Heels were hyped at this point in time, especially as they pulled even closer to a win over their arch rivals.

When broadcast networks show highlights of the UNC basketball vs. Duke rivalry in the future, this is a moment that definitely could be included in the clips. Like other notable moments in this rivalry, this is one that Tar Heels fans will enjoy seeing on replay for many years to come.
