UNC vs NC State game thread

Let’s make it two in a row.

NCAA Basketball: Miami-Florida at North Carolina Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports

The UNC basketball team was finally able to pick up a win in 2020 on Saturday against an injury-depleted Miami team. It was good for everyone to see the ball go in the basket and for the team to come away with a win for the first time in what felt like forever.

Tonight is a bigger deal. Roy Williams hates losing to NC State, and NC State loves beating UNC. The Tar Heels would love nothing more than to make it two wins in a row, especially at the expense of the Wolfpack. Unfortunately, they will still be short-handed. In addition to Cole Anthony still being out, Jeremiah Francis is out as well.

Hopefully Brandon Robinson is able to continue his hot shooting as of late now that he is able to play again. He’s been a huge part of the offense, particularly from deep, and his absence was sorely missed against Virginia Tech.

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

Go Heels!
