It's a quick turnaround for the Tar Heels after defeating Florida State at the Smith Center on Saturday. Carolina is back in action tonight at home against the Syracuse Orange as Roy Williams goes for his 800th win as a head coach. Tony Bradley will be missing his second straight game after suffering a concussion against Wake Forest last Wednesday in Winston-Salem.
The atmosphere in the Dean Dome was pretty incredible Saturday afternoon, but it may not be quite as intense on a week night against Syracuse. The Tar Heels will have to play with whatever energy they get from the crowd. As is normally the case, the UNC big men will need to stay out of foul trouble while they are down Bradley. Expect to see the small lineup back in motion at various points tonight. Syracuse's zone defense is one that has given the Tar Heels fits at points, so that will be another thing to monitor.
If you're watching tonight's game from home instead of the Smith Center you can catch the game on ESPN or WatchESPN at 7:00 pm ET.
