The Tar Heels have had an extended break after knocking off #10 Virginia Tech at home last Monday. Getting a full week’s rest during the middle of conference play can be extremely helpful for obvious reasons, and hopefully Carolina comes out looking sharp as a result tonight.
Carolina is perfect on the road so far in ACC play this season, picking up wins at Pitt, NC State, and Miami. They’ll look to keep that streak going tonight in Atlanta. Nassir Little has been much more of an offensive force for UNC the last couple of games, driving to the basket with authority for more high percentage shots. With Sterling Manley still sidelined with a knee injury, Little will still have his number called early and often.
As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...
