UNC vs Miami Game Thread

The Tar Heels go to work in Miami

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Tar Heels got back in the win column by gritting out a victory against Notre Dame at home on Tuesday. They’ll need to do one better and find a way to pick up another conference victory on the road when they take on Miami this afternoon.

Carolina certainly has size that should give Miami problems. Their point guard, Chris Lykes, stands at just 5’7”. Contrast that with Coby White’s 6’4” frame and that alone should be plenty to disrupt what the Hurricanes are trying to do...if everything goes according to plan.

There are no gimmes in the ACC and we all know that. UNC found out real quick what happens when you don’t bring your A game to a conference game when they got embarrassed by Louisville. They’ll need to avoid a similar fate by doing a lot of the things they did down the stretch against the Fighting Irish.

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

Go Heels!
