UNC Basketball: Georgia Tech Game Thread

The Tar Heels are looking for their first conference win.

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Kentucky Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

I’ll be honest with you, my memories of playing Georgia Tech this time of year are not pleasant. They’ve ruined my New Year’s before and with all that 2020 has given us, I’m really hoping UNC can find a way to keep that from happening again.

Carolina heads to Atlanta to try and pick up their first conference win of the season. The Yellow Jackets have won their last two games against Delaware State and Florida A&M after losing their first ACC game of the season against Florida State in Tallahassee. Who among us, right?

The Heels’ performance against State was terrible. The defensive effort, if nothing else, was as bad as we’ve seen it. That has to change and fast because we’re past the point of calling it early at this stage. Another thing to keep an eye on will be the slow starts. They can’t continue, and breaking the habit now would be most welcome heading into 2021.

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

Go Heels!
