UNC and Duke will remain as one of the best hoops rivalries.

Some of the best college basketball rivalries will be no longer once the conference realignment goes in to full effect, but luckily some of the nation's premier rivalries will continue.

Though changing conferences gives some programs the opportunity to make more money or strengthen recruiting, certain rivalries will sadly fade away.

The biggest changes come in the Big East as the Syracuse Orange and Pittsburgh Panthers head to the ACC after this season.

The West Virginia Mountaineers have already moved on to the Big 12, ending the memorable rivalry maintained with Pitt through the years.

One of the most iconic college basketball rivalries, between Syracuse and the Georgetown Hoyas, will be altered at season's end.

Another favorite rivalry came to an end this season is that between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Missouri Tigers, as Mizzou now plays in the SEC.

It is possible that these rivalries could continue through non-conference play, but that is yet to be determined.

Let's take a glance at some of college basketball's rivalries that will remain unscathed.
