UNC Takes Shot at NC State before Showdown with Duke

The greatest rivalry in college basketball will be renewed Thursday night when #9 Duke makes the short trip to Chapel Hill to face #21 UNC.

Tar Heels guard Joel Berry II took a shot at NC State during practice this week when talking about their upcoming game with Duke.

"Honestly it's only one rivalry game with Duke, I don't count NC State as being a rivalry," said Berry. "Whenever you talk about a rivalry you always talk about Duke/North Carolina, and that's the biggest one. I love being a part of the Duke/Carolina rivalry but NC State, I just don't consider that as being a rivalry, we just don't like them."

UNC faces Duke Thursday night at 8pm at the Dean Smith Center.
