CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- If you're a fan of college basketball, you would love to live in the Triangle.

That's because a personal financial website, WalletHub, has ranked both Chapel Hill and Durham among the top cities in the country for college basketball fans. The hometown of the University of North Carolina had the top ranking in that list of 289 cities throughout the nation. Durham, which is home to Duke and North Carolina Central University, was listed at No. 4.

With the 2018 men's NCAA tournament in its initial weekend, there is not a more intense time for college basketball fans. It's likely that this list will add fuel to the fire of the already volcanic rivalry between the Tar Heels and the Blue Devils.
