After starting ACC play 0-3 North Carolina may have righted the ship right on time.
Thursday night the Tar Heels won their eighth in a row defeating rival Duke 74-66 in round one of the Battle of the Blues.
Here's the highlights, Thanks GoHeelsTV
Marcus Paige scored all of his 13 points in the second half to lead the Carolina comeback.
This game morphed into a heavyweight slugfest you would expect from the rivalry.
"For a few minutes there both teams were fighting so hard it wasn't very pretty." North Carolina head coach Roy Williams said. "It's really two teams that fought awfully hard and understand where they stand in this
"I think it's an emotional game." Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "No matter what you talk about until you're in it, you don't know. They're kids, kids, men-it can affect you. The atmosphere was sensational, but we should want that and we do. That's a great atmosphere to play in, but sometimes it can hurt your communication patterns. You can start to think of what you're doing instead of what we're doing. That can have an impact, no question."
On Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina it was party time.
