Welcome to another edition of #TBT: Throwback Thursday.

Duke college basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski will be seeing a lot of ESPN analysts Jay Bilas — who was a four-year starter for Coach K from 1982-86 — and Dick Vitale this week.

First, Duke visits UNC tonight (ESPN, 9 ET) in a game that originally was scheduled for Feb. 12 but was postponed by weather conditions. Saturday night, Bilas and Vitale will be courtside again when the Blue Devils host Syracuse (ESPN, 7 ET) in a rematch of a classic encounter earlier this month.

On Feb. 1 at Syracuse, the Orange beat Duke 91-89 in overtime. The game was ESPN’s third most-viewed regular-season men’s college basketball game on record. ESPN will provide live studio coverage for both games; Bilas also will be seen on the Saturday edition of College GameDay.
