NEW YORK- College basketball’s marquee rivalry apparently ends on Tobacco Road.

North Carolina coach Roy Williams is picking Duke to win the national championship next week in Indianapolis, which might be considered treason by the most ardent of Tar Heel fans.

The top-seeded Blue Devils play West Virginia on Saturday, with the winner meeting the Michigan State-Butler winner in the final.

“I think Duke is the favorite. They’ve proven that, they’re the No. 1 seed, they deserved the No. 1 seed,” Williams said Monday, calling West Virginia his second choice. “Duke is the favorite, there’s no question in my mind about that, but it’s the Final Four and anything can happen.”
