The Duke Blue Devils are getting set for one of the program's two biggest games of the year as they prepare to do battle with archrival North Carolina on Wednesday. While this is certainly the biggest game of the week in college basketball, one of Duke's signees, Elliot Williams, will be participating in one of his biggest match-ups of the year as he readies himself to face off against close friend and 2009 Duke target Leslie McDonald.
