The NCAA basketball schedule 2013 brings plenty of great action Saturday night, right ahead of March Madness tournaments. Among the big games on Saturday evening are Duke vs. UNC in an ACC rematch ahead of the "Big Dance." The game will be televised and live streaming online for college sports fans to enjoy.
A report on March 8 from ESPN.com indicates that the Tarheels could be hampered a bit with sophomore James Michael McAdoo. He's currently dealing with a bulging disk in his back, but has indicated he'll be good to go come Saturday night against Duke. The game will take place at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with McAdoo hoping he can contribute to a major upset of the #3 Blue Devils.
For Duke, they continue their quest to lock up a #1 seed heading into the 2013 NCAA tournament. If they win tonight and don't suffer any major upset losses early in the ACC tournament, they're likely to get one. Right now, they're greatly aided by the return of Ryan Kelly to the lineup to help ignite the scoring charge. However, this has always been an intense rivalry and with Duke favored by just 1 1/2 points, it could be another game that comes down to the wire between these two foes.
The Duke vs. UNC game has a start time of 9 p.m. EST on Saturday night. Viewers in Roanoke can watch it on Cox Cable channel 25 for ESPN, or on the WatchESPN broadband sports website.
