Daily Tar Heel vs. Duke Chronicle: UNC-Duke Basketball Buzzer Beater (@DailyTarHeel @DukeChronicle)

As of dawn this morning, here are the main stories on The Daily Tar Heel and The Duke Chronicle websites recounting last night’s down-to-the-wire wowzer between Duke University and the University of North Carolina.

With the final seconds ticking off the clock, Austin Rivers had already played the game of his life on the season’s biggest stage. But the Blue Devils still trailed by two, and the 6-foot-4 freshman stood dribbling on the right wing, guarded by 7-foot senior Tyler Zeller.Looking first at the clock, then the imposing body in front of him, Rivers subtly jabbed, creating all the space he needed to swish a 3-pointer and give Duke an 85-84 victory. . . .”

They knew exactly what was about to happen.  With less than 14 seconds to go in the game, No. 10 Duke trailing No. 5 North Carolina by just two and the ball in Austin Rivers’ hands, Kendall Marshall predicted the next play as if he could read the freshman guard’s mind. . . . “
