Alexander-Walker leads Virginia Tech in scoring with 18.2 points per game while Blackshear Jr. leads the Hokies in rebounding with 5.8 rebounds per game. Virginia Tech is tough on defense, allowing just 59.5 points per game.
The North Carolina Tar Heels are coming off an 85-76 win over Miami-Florida. Cameron Johnson scored 22 points in that game while Kenny Williams added 16. Johnson is the team’s leading scorer with 15.9 points per game while Maye is a beast down in the paint, averaging 9.9 rebounds per game and he is regularly recording double-doubles.
