Theo Pinson claims UNC punked Duke last game

It’s already been ten days since UNC ran Duke out of Chapel Hill, beating the Blue Devils 93-84.

Despite taking place earlier this month, that hasn’t stopped former UNC stars Theo Pinson and Justin Jackson from speaking about the rivalry win. On a recent episode of Run Your Race, Pinson had Tar Heel favorite on to talk about the game and UNC’s dominance.

In a snippet sent by Tidal League, Pinson expresses how he felt the UNC punked Duke, alluding to the fact that both teams felt the Tar Heels were better. The play showed that UNC was better, but you can be the judge if you feel Pinson’s description of them punking Duke was accurate.

The conversation pinpoints the confidence that UNC played with that night, clicking on all cylinders. Since that win, the Tar Heels haven’t come out with that sort of desire, but knowing that type of fight exists, especially showcasing that against a rival like Duke.

It’s always nice seeing Pinson hype up UNC. Pinson had been on a tear lately, feeding his teammates into a franchise-record night. It will be intriguing to see if UNC can punk Duke again next month.
