Although March is still a few days away, college basketball is really starting to dominate events for week 9 of 2012 (February 27th through March 4th). Most NCAA teams are wrapping up their regular season this week and preparing for the conference tournaments with big games against some heated rivals.
In this week’s top event we see #4 Duke Blue Devils matched up against #6 North Carolina Tarheels. Both teams are tied with 25-4 records (12-2 in the ACC) and the winner will get the #1 seed in the ACC Tournament. Also likely on the line is a top seed in the NCAA Tournament.
