CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Duke and North Carolina met Saturday as unranked opponents in a very different look for the fierce rivalry.

The game has long captured national attention while having high stakes, including potential Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championships. 

This marked the first time both were unranked in consecutive matchups since February 1955.

UNC won 91-73 to sweep the season series and secure the No. 6 seed in next week's ACC Tournament. The Blue Devils fell to a No. 10 seed for the lowest in program history.
