The Root Of the Duke-UNC Rivalry

The Duke-UNC rivalry has become legendary of course, but at the root of it all is the legendary fight in 1961.  For those of you who've never seen it, here's a YouTube clip.

You can look up various stories from various people, but our favorite was when Art Heyman was just gleeful about hitting Frank McGuire "in the nuts."  He said that McGuire saw him years later and said, "it still hurts, Artie."
