In NCAA men’s basketball it doesn’t get much more intense than when Duke and North Carolina square off. This battle of ACC powerhouses has been one of the biggest rivalries in sports for decades, and some of the biggest names in basketball history have taken part in those battles.
Current Lakers Ryan Kelly (Duke) and Kendall Marshall (UNC) know all about those ACC showdowns, and will be in attendance on Sunday, Feb. 9th at L.A. Live for the premiere of Duke-Carolina: The Blue Bloods Rivalry, a documentary looking at some great moments between the two Tobacco Road universities.[new_royalslider id=”147″]
Set to attend this Sunday’s screening are current and former Lakers, including Marshall and Kelly, Rick Fox and Antawn Jamison. Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s Jamie Maggio will also be in attendance, hosting the event.
The proceeds of the event go to a good cause, and it should be a fun event for all involved.
Here are the official details;
“We are excited to bring the DUKE-CAROLINA: THE BLUE BLOOD RIVALRY documentary film to basketball fans in Los Angeles especially the members of the Duke and North Carolina alumni groups in southern California,” said Hassan Pinto, executive producer of GFan Films. “The film takes a dynamic and unique fan based look at the greatest college basketball rivalry in America, and is a must-see film whether you are fan of Duke, Carolina or college basketball.”“We have created a fun, family oriented Sunday afternoon for everyone,” said Erikk Aldridge, Director of STAPLES Center Foundation. “More importantly, the event will support the foundation’s Get Active campaign which is designed to get young people fit and fight childhood obesity, and raise money to support 1,000 local kids participation in the annual Nike Basketball 3ON3 Tournament at L.A.
