While both the Tar Heels and and Blue Devils are typically known for dynamic guards and strong forwards, this year has seen the wings consistently bring it offensively.
Here is a breakdown of UNC's experienced perimeter players, as well as the more youthful group from Duke:
Ryan, the 6-foot-5 Notre Dame transfer, has been one of the key player for the Tar Heels this season. The New York native is more than a 3-point shooter — he's a leader.
As a sixth-year who has transferred twice, Ryan's experience allows him to make quick decisions and demonstrate strong defensive skills against opponents, as well as act as an impassioned example for the rest of the team — whether it's speaking up in huddles or kicking over water coolers in practice.
Ryan is averaging 10.9 points per game and shooting just under 38 percent from the field. Since the start of the new year, he's found his place behind the arc, draining 30 percent of his shots from three. Ryan is a skilled combo guard who can both shoot and post up if needed against smaller players like Blue Devil guard Jeremy Roach.
A junior transfer from Stanford, Ingram has settled into his role at UNC — especially from behind the arc, where he is currently shooting 40 percent.
Head coach Hubert Davis has relied on the 6-foot-7 forward — who he has dubbed a "complete player" — to get to the rim both offensively and defensively. Ingram ranks only second behind Armando Bacot in rebounds, averaging 8.8 per game.
