A lot of people might be busy finishing their Christmas shopping or getting their house clean and ready for incoming guests instead of watching UNC basketball this afternoon. That’s understandable. For those tuning in today, the Tar Heels need to figure out some way to come up with enough offense to avoid a fifth straight loss when they take on UCLA in Las Vegas.
The early season has been a bit of a struggle for Carolina, and Cole Anthony is still at least several weeks away from returning. A few players who are playing seem like they might be battling injuries of their own. Unfortunately, there is just not much rest to be found in order to allow nagging aches and pains to improve.
UNC needs someone to step up offensively. Who will it be? That’s the biggest question facing this team, and without an answer...well, let’s not think about that right now.
As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup of the happenings. Until then...
