OSG Buzzer Beater: Austin Rivers sinks Carolina

Another Duke vs. North Carolina game. Another opportunity for breathless hyperbole from Dickie V. Another "Classic Rivalry" game.

And though they may not be the very best teams in the land, Wednesday night, they easily had the best game.

Carolina led for most of the game and late in the 2nd half was still up by 10-points, at home. And then something strange happened.

Duke took over.

They quickly chipped away, but still trailed by 2 with just a few seconds to play.

That's when freshman Austin Rivers (Doc's son), dribbled around, stepped back from the 3-point line and drilled the game-winner.

Duke beats the buzzer...85-84.

Here's a full report from ACC Network's Tim Brando and FOSG Dan Bonner. Dan has a great interview with Austin Rivers and plenty of reaction shots from Austin's dad Doc Rivers.

Duke's win over North Carolina ended the Tar Heels 30 game winning streak at the Dean Smith Center.
