Everyone knows that the Duke-UNC rivalry is one of the most heated rivalries in sports. The tone is set by the competitive nature’s of Coach K and Roy Williams trickling down into the assistant coaches and players. Simply put, if you attend one of these schools you hate the other. What I was unaware of was how serious the team managers take the rivalry.
Based on that shot to the head and the reaction of the benches and crowd I would say the intensity is pretty strong at the bottom part of the coaching staffs as well.
