Location: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, NC
North Carolina vs. Miami Live TV: ESPN
The Hurricanes have put forth two very good efforts here in the ACC Tournament, and many think that they are going to roll to the ACC title and perhaps to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. G Shane Larkin is now up to averaging 14.2 points per game this year after his 23-point effort against the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday. F Durant Scott put up 32 points as well. This North Carolina team though, really looks like a tremendous team in the ACC. The Heels have a very talented six players on their team that are in this rotation. F James Michael McAdoo has had a pair of great efforts, while G PJ Hairston has continued to knock down shots from the outside. The pace of this game is what we are really interested in. The Hurricanes are going to have to dominate this game in the paint, because if they don’t, they are going to get run right off of the court. Head Coach Roy Williams knows that he has to push the tempo of this one, and if the home court advantage proves to be the edge for the Heels, they’ll be able to avenge a pair of losses this season to Miami.
