Watch: Duke's Jayson Tatum rises for monster dunk vs. UNC

So, that was fun. The first matchup of the year between the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels was a doozy. Duke would end up emerging with the victory, 86-78, despite being locked in a tight game for most of the second half. Nonetheless, this meeting has given Duke and UNC faithful plenty to salivate over.

Case in point, this monster, one-handed slam courtesy of Duke freshman forward Jayson Tatum. 

The first-year player put up 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists to help keep his team in the ballgame. All that after a scoreless first half, mind you. Well, Tatum may be new to the Tobacco Road Rivalry but he seems to get the gist of things so far. There will be a rematch on March 4, but Duke owns bragging rights in the state of North Carolina for now.
