No. 17 Duke took control early and managed to leave Fetzer Field with an 11-8 victory over No. 8 North Carolina Wednesday.

The opening faceoff is 90 minutes away  it is sunny and clear and a brisk 55 degrees with game time temperatures expected to dip down into the high forties. 

Both teams are coming off big wins from last weekend as Duke (3-4) topped No. 4 Loyola 9-8 while the North Carolina (3-2) edged No. 5 Princeton 16-15.

This will be the 68th meeting between the two teams, with the Tar Heels leading the series, 38-29.

Duke has won 24 of the two teams' meetings dating back to 1996, and 15 of the 16 meetings dating back to 2005.

North Carolina last defeated the Blue Devils in 2010, a 13-7 victory in Durham.

Regardless of past records, a game between Duke and Carolina is about the present and what happens from here until the end of the season.

This will be a good one - follow along, watch, and interact as the game goes along.
