This is a big game for the Deacs as Big 4 rival North Carolina comes to the Joel. The Deacs are still hanging on to some outside hopes of making the big dance in March, and beating the Tar Heels would be a nice start to finishing off the regular season on a high note. The Heels are in the midst of a 2-game losing streak and just lost to hated rival Duke, so they are probably looking for retribution in this one. Head coach Hubert Davis made a big fuss about the Heels only shooting 3 free throws against the Blue Devils, so don’t be shocked if this game is called incredibly tight—making free throws could be the difference maker in this one.

Go Deacs!
