This should be a glorified live action scrimmage. Miami does not the depth, quality of depth, offensive power or defensive tact to stop UNC from doing what they want to do while stopping the Canes from doing anything they want to do. At the same time I would expect Miami go give a fairly spirited effort and UNC might be a little cobweb bound from the trip home and the usual let down after such a convincing win. Brandan Wright and Marcus Ginyard should return to the lineup and questions concerning the rotation will become a focus, especially given the kind of games Alex Stepheson and Deon Thompson had against Arizona. I also believe this game is as much about this team maintianing a focused intensity even going into a game they are so heavily favored to win. Then again that is why Roy gets the money he gets.
