So it is Senior Night under the threat of winter weather in the Raleigh-Durham area. That means the attendance, which was probably going to be down to begin with might be depressed further. UNC heads into this game in a position that have been in only three other times in ACC play and that is following a win. In this case they have a good shot at winning two straight since I would consider Miami a beatable team for these Heels. Heck, NCSU beat the Hurricanes at Miami on Saturday so UNC should be able to do the same. As far as what is on the line, I would really like UNC to avoid finishing 12th in the ACC. I would also like to see them at least finish .500 or better. A win tonight ensures the latter and gives UNC an inside track on the former heading to Durham this weekend where anything could potentially happen.
Per UNC tradition we will see Marc Campbell start at PG with Marcus Ginyard and Deon Thompson filling their customary starting roles. It will be interesting to see what Roy does with minutes seeing that the lineup with Tyler Zeller and John Henson on the blocks is probably the most effective. It would be nice to see something in that direction but I doubt it since Roy is going to give the two regular seniors every chance to have a big night. And if they both bring it, then fine. Of course if they follow Bobby Frasor's advice, it could be a wild night.
Yeah, I am not sure that is such a good idea.
