UNC Basketball: NC State Game Thread

The last time NC State stepped foot in the Dean Dome, they walked out with a 51-point loss. It was a glorious game. Everything about it should be preserved for generations to come.

Carolina is coming off a loss to Virginia Tech on the road, and teams that have the misfortune of playing the Tar Heels after a loss have often times been punished mightily. Roy Williams hates losing to State more than he hates missing his tee times. This will hopefully get ugly. Very ugly.

Defense was a real issue for UNC in their loss to Virginia Tech, in addition to the fact that only Joel Berry II and Luke Maye were factors on offense. It isn’t hard for things to go better against the Wolfpack, just because of how ineffective they played against the Hokies.

As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the events. Until then...

Go Heels!
