The ACC has proven so far this season that you can never take any games off. UNC might want to look ahead to Saturday's date with Florida State, but overlooking Wake Forest would be a mistake. The Demon Deacons have played a couple really good teams close so far this season, and should be hungry for one of those games to turn into a win. Carolina has to make sure that doesn't happen.
The Tar Heels are riding high after their complete obliteration of NC State on Sunday. They are finally at full strength for the first time this season with the return of Theo Pinson, and need to keep the momentum going. UNC's bad loss to Georgia Tech on New Year's Eve is going to hang over them, and they really cannot afford to slip up against inferior competition again. Playing on the road in the ACC is never a given, but hopefully the Heels can do what they do and come away from The Joel with a win.
You can catch tonight's game on ESPN2 at 8:00 pm.
