It’s the ACC Tournament week, and Duke and North Carolina are meeting again – this time in the Friday semi-finals. That means a ratings bonanza for ESPN. Duke/UNC games were two of the four highest rated college basketball games this season, but it would have been big rating if UNC/Louisville were playing tomorrow too.
Pulled from SportsMediaWatch, 8 of the top 12 rated regular season college basketball games featured an ACC team. Five games were purely ACC vs ACC matchups. No other conference had more than two intra-conference games on the list. Duke led all teams with 5 appearances on this list. UNC was tied with Kentucky with 4. Louisville was on the list 3 times.
