This week is going to be extra special as far as college hoops go, and you will not want to miss out on the action. The Blue Devils will hop on a quick 20 min bus ride to head over to Chapel Hill, taking on their biggest rivals, the UNC Tar Heels in another highly anticipated game that will have the entire country tuning in. Then we also have the second meeting of the season, between NC State’s Wolfpack and the Tar Heels, less than 48 hours later. Should be a fun couple of games worth blocking out your schedule for and staying glued to the big screen! We highlight below all of the best upcoming games worth your attention this week.

The 919 game pick for week #6 in 2018 will be of course the Tar Heels taking on the Blue Devils. It will be interesting to see how close the game is, and who is able to pull out a win after all said and done.

We have listed all of the best local games happening this week for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to mark your calendars, set your DVR’s to record, and fire up those live streaming and social media apps when it’s game-time so you have the best all-around virtual seats to cheer on your fave teams with the ultimate behind the scenes access.
