Greatest moments in the North Carolina-Duke rivalry

Yardbarker Logo By Shiloh Carder of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 20: Many people feel that it was this game that really began the rivalry. Art Heyman originally committed to North Carolina before backing out and going to Duke. When the two teams met in Durham in 1961 there was a ton of tension between the players, as Heyman and UNC's Doug Moe nearly got into a fight. (Heyman reportedly shoved a Carolina cheerleader down on his way to the locker room at halftime.) With Duke leading by five with 15 seconds left in the game, Heyman fouled Larry Brown (yes, that Larry Brown), which led to a bench-clearing brawl. Fans even went onto the court to fight. A rivalry was born.
