In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Harvard at North Carolina.
Harvard is 4-4 in its last 8 games and 6-5 on the year. The Crimson are still looking for consistency but it will be tough to gain it in this one. The team is averaging nearly 70 points on 48% shooting while allowing 68.5 points on 44% shooting. The team’s biggest vulnerability that they make many turnovers and this costs them games. Chris Lewis is the team’s leading scorer with 13.4 points while Justin Bassey is the other double-digit scorer with 10.5 points per game.
The North Carolina Tar Heels started the season very well but they suffered 3 defeats in the last 9 outings- something that they are not familiar with. The North Carolina Tar Heels are averaging 91.4 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 74.4 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Cameron Johnson leads the team in scoring with 16.7 points per game while Luke Maye is adding 14.2 points per game on his own.
North Carolina is taking care of less reputable squads with ease so far in the season. However, Harvard is a battle-tested team which lost all 5 of its games by 10 points or less. I think that they will hang in until late in the second half and finally lose.
