Bleacher Report did a countdown of the Top 25 Rivalries in College Basketball. To no one's surprised Puke-Tar Holes were #1, but at #10....and remember "We're not Their Rivals"
Yet another casualty of realignment, the Maryland Terrapins—Duke Blue Devils rivalry is heading into its last season of conference play before Maryland jumps ship for the Big Ten.
That makes 2013-14 the last chance for the two teams to duplicate their astonishing 2000-01 season, when they met four times: two regular-season games, the ACC tournament semis and the Final Four, where eventual champion Duke beat the Terps for the third time.
Of course, one of those wins required Duke to make up a 10-point deficit in 54 seconds, a painful memory for Maryland fans that was pushed aside a year later by their program’s only national title.
The 2012-13 Terps weren’t up to that standard, but they did score their biggest win of the year over then-No. 2 Duke, stunning the Blue Devils by an 83-81 margin in College Park.
