In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see North Carolina at NC State.
Even though the Tar Heels have 11 wins on their resume so far, their season is still regarded as inconsistent because they also have 3 losses. They won their previous 3 games and are coming off an 85-60 road win over Pittsburgh. North Carolina shot just 43% but limited the opposition to 30% shooting and this led to the win. The team is scoring 89.9 points per game while allowing 72.1 points.
NC State is having a better season than most people expected. The team has just 1 loss and it is now on a 7-game winning streak. They are just coming off an 87-82 road win over Miami Florida in a game where Markell Johnson scored 20 points on 6 for 8 shooting. Torin Dorn is the team’s leading scorer with 14.5 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. The Wolfpack are currently 10-0 at home.
The Tar Heels rebounded from the Kentucky loss and won each of their next 3 games while allowing less than 60 points. They are just on a roll at the moment and given the fact that the Wolfpack almost lost to Miami Florida, I expect the Tar Heels to get a solid road win.
