Game Thread: UNC-Virginia

North Carolina at Virginia, 7:00 PM, ESPN

The expected outcome here is UNC ends up losing because this match-up doesn't favor the Tar Heels, the game is on the road and Virginia is playing some of its best basketball of the season.

Of course there was a point in the season where this Tar Heel team did the opposite of what everyone expected them to do, won games they were not supposed to win and struggle against teams they should beat. If there was ever a time for the "win games they were not supposed to win" team to show up, this game would be it. If UNC can win here, it would position them to get their conference record in order over the next four games before facing Duke and Pitt at home. Then again if they win one they aren't suppose to there is no reason to think they will also win games they should win. And I have a headache now.

Comments if you have 'em.
