The men's basketball program at Duke didn't become one of the most reviled and successful in the nation by not winning plenty of big games. Since taking over as head coach in Durham for the 1980-1981 season, Mike Krzyzewski has turned Duke into a perennial contender and cut down the nets after four national championships

Perhaps most importantly to fans in Durham, however, Coach K shifted the balance of power along Tobacco Road.

While those hundreds of wins at Duke and all those titles are certainly nice, some fans of the Blue Devils will always savor the wins over intra-state rival North Carolina the most. Featuring standout performances by famed -- or infamous, if you're watching from Chapel Hill -- Dukies from Shane Battier to Austin Rivers, here are seven memorable wins that Coach K's club has scored over the Tar Heels.
