Fanatics/ G.Tucker

It’s happening. The Final Four storybook matchup that we all prayed would happen for Coach K’s final hurrah. At the beginning of the tournament, a Duke vs UNC Final Four seemed like a pipe dreamsomething that was way too good to be true. Except the Basketball Gods looked out for us. And since they were kind enough to look out for us, Duke and UNC fans definitely have to take advantage of this opportunity to cop some new merch for what is sure to be one of the highest-rated college games of all time (this may even go down as one of the highest-rated games in the history of sports).

You know ONE37pm already has you covered, so we’ve gathered a list of Duke and UNC apparel that you can either pick up in-store or have shipped to you this week. Let’s see what we’re working with, shall we?

1. Duke Nike Fleece Hoodie

Duke University Stores

Okay, we’ll start with the local school stores. Since school is still in session, students can make their way to the university store to pick up just about anything Duke-related when it comes to merchandise. We’re assuming that at least a small percentage of Duke students will be at the game Saturday, and the rest will be at watch parties around the area, so obviously the University store is the best/quickest option for those individuals.

Of course, if you happen to be at or near Durham this week, in-person shopping may also be an option depending on Duke's shopping policies. If you’re in the area and for some reason you can’t get to the campus store, there will more than likely be stores nearby that have Duke merchandise as well.

Rambling aside, this is a very nice hoodie. You can also get this exact same hoodie at Dick’s Sporting Goods and Nike.

BUY NOW, $70

2. Duke Jersey

Check this out. has an excellent deal going on right now where you can get three-day expedited shipping for just $14.99. Not bad if you ask us. However, there’s a catch. The jerseys in particular are selling out quite fast. Hopefully, you can snag one in time for the game (or be willing to go up or down a size).

3. Duke 2022 Final Four Hat

This is probably the most relevant Duke item that you can cop right now. What we have here is the official 2022 NCAA Final Four hat. Regardless of whether or not Duke wins this game, this matchup will be a part of sports history, and owning official merchandise is the right way to go. Might be a good investment too.

4. Duke T-Shirt

We hesitated to put this on here because there is almost zero chance that this will be here before Saturday. In fact, according to Nike, you may not get it until next Tuesday (April 8th) which is obviously after not only the Final Four but the National Championship as well. So if you are a Duke fan and planning on buying this shirt, you have to be okay with still owning it if, in fact, Duke does not win the title.

BUY NOW, $35

5. North Carolina 2022 NCAA Final Four Hat

UNC Tarheels

Same deal as Duke. If you are a UNC student or near the Chapel Hill area, there’s a chance that you can skip the online hoopla altogether and pick up your new UNC merchandise either at the University Store, or at a nearby store such as Walmart, Target, or an athletic store, etc as those places tend to have team merchandise as well.

If you aren’t nearby or out of luck, you can always go to the Fanatics website which once again offers three-day shipping for $14.99, which means you get it before the game.

6. Jordan Brand 2022 Locker Room T-Shirt

UNC Tarheels

These are the official locker room shirt replicas that were worn during the celebration, and honestly, they’re pretty cool. Definitely feel the bracket design against the baby blue, that’s a clean look. Plus, you’re obviously talking about apparel that’s Jordan Brand, which is always a bonus.

BUY NOW, $34.99

7. Jordan UNC Jersey

If you are a die-hard UNC fan, then chances are you probably own something Number 23 related already, but in case you don’t, here ya go! The good thing about Jordan’s UNC Jersey is that it’s pretty universal in the sense that you’re not limited to only finding it online. You could go to your local mall and there might be a shop (Jimmy Jazz for example) that has it available. You never know.

BUY NOW, $120

8. Mitchell and Ness Jordan 83/84 Jersey

Normally we wouldn’t double do it, but we had to double do it. Look at this beautiful retro Michael Jordan jersey. Doesn’t it scream 1980s basketball, jerry curls, and extra super short basketball shorts? Worth every penny if you ask us.

Well, this is it, folks. Whether you go with our selections or not, we hope you are able to get some new merch for what we think will be the game of the ages. The Duke vs UNC matchup is set to go down this Saturday, April 2nd, at 8:49 pm EST.
