UNC Basketball: Cavaliers vs. Tar Heels game preview

Share

One of the marquee matchups on Saturday pits the #14 Virginia Cavaliers against the #10 North Carolina Tar Heels in college basketball action. Junior swingman Justin Jackson leads the team in scoring (18.7) and shoots 39.5 percent from 3-point range after averaging 20.7 points since the rout of the Wolfpack last month, while junior guard Joel Berry ll is next (14.9 points, 4.0 assists, 41.4 percent from long range). This game was never in doubt at any point, except for maybe like the first minute when it's hard to build a decisive lead seeing as how it's the first minute of the game and a minute only lasts one minute. As a team, Virginia is scoring 68.8 points per game on 48.7% shooting from the field, 38.9% from behind the arc and 71.5% from the foul line this season.

Ninth-ranked North Carolina looks to recover from a loss to one major rival by putting a second straight beating on another when it visits reeling North Carolina State on Wednesday for an ACC matchup. Before failing to cover its last two away from home, Virginia went 8-1 against the spread in its previous nine on the road. North Carolina has won three straight in this series, including a 107-56 win on January 8. The Dean Smith center is a hard place to go on the road and win, even if you boast the best defense in the country.
