The Duke basketball team can punch its ticket to the National Championship on Saturday night.
The stakes have never been higher for the Duke basketball program.
A Final Four game against hated North Carolina in the final season under head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
The two have never met in the NCAA Tournament, but that will change on Saturday night.
It does not much bigger than that.
The Tar Heels defeated Marquette, Baylor, UCLA, and St. Peter’s to get to the Final Four while the Blue Devils toppled Cal State Fullerton, Michigan State, Texas Tech, and Arkansas.
Both programs split the regular-season series with each team winning on the other’s home court.
However, North Carolina pulled off the biggest victory in the upset in the final home game for Mike Krzyzewski at the beginning of March.
Some have called Saturday the biggest game in the history of college basketball, but it is certainly the biggest game in the history of Duke basketball.
