Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

North Carolina at Virginia Tech, 3:00 PM
TV: ESPN News and ESPN3(replay at 6:30 PM on ESPNU)
Announcers: Anish Shroff, Cory Alexander
Line: UNC -12.5; KenPom: UNC 88-78

UPDATE: ESPN will broadcast the game on ESPN News along with the ESPN3 broadcast. The game will be rebroadcast at 6:30 PM on ESPNU.

This game feels a little like the UNC-FSU game in 2008. The Tar Heels went to Tallahassee on Super Bowl Sunday and barely escape with an overtime win that saw Ty Lawson suffer a high ankle sprain. There is a lot of buzz in North Carolina regarding the Panthers in the NFC Championship this game feels a bit like an afterthought. Hopefully the players won't treat it that way.

Comments if you have 'em.
