You think the Duke-North Carolina rivalry only gets heated when Coach K and Roy Williams are squaring off?
As is tradition, the UNC basketball managers hosted Duke’s basketball managers in a game the night before The Game, and Tuesday’s matchup nearly turned into a brawl.
According to Duke’s student newspaper, Duke freshman Drew Goldstein is the guy in the video taking an elbow to the face. The two teams came together, but luckily, no punches were thrown and they were able to get the game under control.
This is the second straight year that video from this game has gone viral. Last season, it ended with a buzzer-beater and a court-storm.
UNC would win 38-33.
