As it should be, Instant Classic on ESPNU and ESPN Classic

By February 9, 2012No Comments


Today, ESPNU and ESPN Classic will each re-air last night’s last-second win in the latest memorable installment of one of sports’ fiercest and most-storied rivalries, Duke and North Carolina. ESPNU will re-air the game – won by Duke 85-84 on Austin Rivers’ three-point shot at the buzzer – at 1 p.m. ET and ESPN Classic will show it at 8 p.m. The Rivalry Week game became an Instant Classic when Rivers’ shot culminated a comeback from 10 points with just two minutes to go. Dan Shulman was on the call with analysts Jay Bilas and Dick Vitale and sideline reporter Erin Andrews.

Fans of Rivers can see more action of the Duke freshman on ESPNU this afternoon from the 2011 McDonald’s All American Game (2:30 p.m.) and the 2011 POWERADE Jamfest (4 p.m.), both featuring Rivers and previously scheduled in preparation for tonight’s McDonald’s High School All American Game’s Selection Show on ESPNU at 8 p.m.

Duke fans can also re-live another memorable Blue Devil comeback and last-second win tonight when ESPN Classic reairs the 2001 Duke-Maryland game which Duke won in overtime.
