North Carolina won the ACC by 2 games. Justin Jackson improved his three-point shooting and now he provides another technique for scoring buckets. Joel Berry II is the other leading scorer, averaging 15 points per game, 4 assists and 3 rebounds. Meeks is their rim protector, who is also averaging in double digits while adding 9 rebounds, as well.
Texas Southern have Mike Davis as their head coach, who once led Indiana to the national championship. The players are no strangers to facing elite teams because they have already played against Louisville, Arizona and Baylor this year. They are on a 9-game winning streak, heading to the March Madness, led by Zach Lofton, who is averaging 18 points per game. Griffin is averaging 11 points and 11 rebounds per game and he is expected to have a big rebounding battle with Meeks in the paint.

[membership]Texas Southern are one of the worst three-point shooting teams and this is their biggest weakness. Mike Davis knows what it takes to make life miserable for Jackson and Berry. I expect them to slow down the play in order to disrupt North Carolina’s rhythm on offense. That’s why I don’t think they will cover the spread which is too big.
