The father of a Duke star has appeared to call out North Carolina's best player for being a dirty player.

Marvin Bagley Jr., the father of Blue Devils' star freshman Marvin Bagley III, took to Facebook to call out Tar Heels' guard Joel Berry.

This post came on Facebook the day after Duke beat UNC in the ACC Tournament:

"Some players lead with their elbows on all contested layups. Is this a dirty player? DUKE NATION SIGHTS ON 6

I pick Grayson Allen 10/10 times to go to war!!!

P.S. If you are not pulling for Duke to win the National Championship please don’t attempt to contact me at this time as we have nothing in common. I will surely catch up with you after College Basketball is done. Thanks & God Bless!" he wrote.

The post included some photographs.

Marvin Bagley's father posts on Facebook.

Duke and UNC are on opposite sides of the bracket, so we'd need them both to make the national title game for another matchup.

The Blue Devils won on Thursday. The Tar Heels are set to play today.
