"North Carolina's standout players Harrison Ingram and Armando Bacot left their mark on the latest installment of the historic rivalry between Duke and UNC, collectively scoring 46 points on 18-25 shooting. Leading by double digits for most of the second half, UNC secured a 94-83 victory at Chapel Hill."

"North Carolina unleashed the necessary intensity to conquer college basketball's most intense rivalry. Their fourth-ranked defense dominated from the start, creating numerous scoring chances in transition. Remarkably, the average UNC possession lasted only 10 seconds within the first six minutes of the game."

Just 11 seconds following Jared McCain's layup, UNC's standout freshman point guard, Elliot Cadeau, swiftly charged down the court. He then located an open Cormac Ryan, who promptly sank North Carolina's initial three-pointer of the game, propelling his team to an early 13-8 lead.

Jeremy Roach, one of the three Blue Devils to score 20 points on Saturday, showcased his shooting prowess by hitting back-to-back three-pointers to tie the game at 22. Nevertheless, Carolina's relentless defense spurred an instant retaliation. UNC capitalized on turnovers, outscoring Duke 19-7 in points off turnovers that afternoon. Ryan initiated a steal near mid-court and finished with a layup through contact in transition, sealing an 8-1 run for UNC.

The Tar Heels continued their balanced scoring strategy, with six players contributing at least four points by halftime. Armando Bacot's layup just before the break extended UNC's lead to 45-35 as they headed into the locker room.

Bacot continued his strong performance after halftime, teaming up with Ingram to dominate the UNC offense in the second half.

In the second half, the duo accounted for UNC's initial 12 points after halftime. Ingram showcased his shooting skills with two contested three-pointers, while Bacot asserted himself in the post, scoring three times and maintaining his dominance over his matchup, Kyle Filipowski.

Bacot's last basket during this run was an elegant left-handed hook shot along the baseline, extending the Tar Heels' lead to 57-46 as the game entered its first media timeout of the second half.

Even with his remarkable performance in Chapel Hill, Ingram demonstrated his willingness to do the gritty work as well. With the Tar Heels leading by ten points and six minutes remaining, he dove onto the court for an offensive rebound, then quickly flicked the loose ball to a nearby Tar Heel guard in a strategic play.

This tremendous display of hustle enabled UNC to capitalize on a disorganized Duke defense. As a result, Cormac found himself wide open in the left corner, where he confidently sank yet another three-pointer.
