The NBA lockout has forced a lot of professionals to get creative with how they spend their time this offseason. Some have gone overseas to play basketball while others have stayed at home to work out while biding their time until the NBA issues are resolved.
For basketball alumni of Duke and North Carolina, they’re getting together for what could be the biggest scrimmage in the history of the rivalry.
On Nov. 17, former Blue Devils and Tar Heels will take to North Carolina Central’s McDougald-McLendon Gym at 8:30 p.m. in the Kings of Tobacco Road game that will feature some of each teams most recent stars.
