ACC Championship: #5 North Carolina vs #3 Notre Dame, 8:30 PM, ESPN/ACC Network

In a lot of ways, UNC needs this win as a program. No, the Tar Heels are in decline nor are they settling for an ACC title instead of a national championship. However it has been a rough couple of years on and off the court. P.J. Hairston, the academic scandal, two second round NCAA Tournament exits, three straight losses to Duke, three straight ten loss seasons and the passing of Dean Smith.

The past two to three years have weighed heavily on Roy Williams so the Tar Heels winning an ACC title would be a nice shower in on a parched and dry summer day. It also could be a nice taste of success for a team that, should everyone return, will be a very good team next season.

ACC Championship is one the line, comments if you have 'em.
