The mark of a truly great rivalry is one where players, coaches and fans all highly anticipate every game no matter what the teams' records may be. In men's college basketball, a great rivalry means the North Carolina Tar Heels vs. the Duke Blue Devils. You can stream the UNC vs. Duke men's basketball game online & without cable tonight.

The University of North Carolina, or UNC, Tar Heels are playing at the Duke Blue Devils at 6 p.m. Eastern tonight, Saturday March 7, 2020, in Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina. In other words, on Duke's home court.

The Tar Heels (13-17) are having one of their worst seasons in recent history. The last losing season UNC had was back in 2001-2002, when it went 8-20. Head coach Roy Williams only has one season with this many losses, when the team went 20-17 and was runner-up in the 2019 NIT championship. UNC may be near the bottom of the ACC, but they've won their last three games. They also took Duke to overtime in their last game just one month ago.

Duke (24-6) is the 12th ranked team in the nation, and just one game out of first in the ACC. All that success didn't allow Duke to roll over UNC in their last game, where Duke found itself down nine points at halftime. In fact, they needed an outstanding performance by Tre Jones to win the game by just two points in overtime. Duke has lost three of their last five games, but they can still get a share of the ACC regular season title with a win tonight.

Watch UNC vs. Duke even if you're outside the United States

It's so frustrating when you have everything you need to stream a prime college basketball rivalry game in March, but you are taking Spring Break out of the country. You might think that you're out of luck because streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. Fear not.

There are ways to get things working again by using a VPN, which is short for "Virtual Private Network". It sends your internet traffic from far away through a specific set of servers, then pops it back into the United States.

Does a VPN sound appealing to you? It's easy to get a great one with subscription services that, for a few bucks a month, tunnel your traffic through your choice of a variety of locations. It can also give you security and peace of mind on open WiFi connections, because a VPN protects you against snoopers on any network.
