On the eve of the latest Duke-UNC throwdown, both schools' managers, who have plenty of game all their own, staged a showdown that might end up being better than a real game. It came down to a last-second heave, and — sorry, Duke haters — the Blue Devil managers won on a buzzer-beating bucket.

We can only hope the Duke-UNC game is this good.
