Amateur Hour podcast: Talking UNC-Duke, Round 1

We talk about only the most important, topical issues of the day on Amateur Hour: A News & Observer College Sports Podcast. This week is no different.

North Carolina and Duke are playing on Wednesday night for the first time this season. If you haven’t heard, the game is a pretty big deal.

Laura Keeley, astute Duke beat reporter that she is, joins the program for a discussion of all things UNC-Duke. Like: the long and dramatic recruitment of Brandon Ingram, for one. Laura and I were in Kinston the day Ingram announced that he’d be going to Duke. UNC had recruited him for several years.

Other topics: how much of a factor depth -- the Tar Heels have it and Duke lacks it -- will be on Wednesday night and the various keys for both teams. Listen to the show right here:
