UNC vs. Wake Forest: Game Thread

The Heels get their chance to redeem themselves from the lackluster performance against the Deacs a few weeks ago.

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The North Carolina Tar Heels are just moments away from their Senior Night showdown with Wake Forest. The team is coming off of a two-game win streak and have hopes of using this game to make a last-second effort to dig their way out of last place. Unfortunately for them the Deacs are coming off a big win against Duke, and so things could potentially be on the upswing for them.

The biggest aspect of the game that everyone will be keeping their eye on is whether or not the Tar Heels come out flat like they did against Wake Forest the first time. It’s not very likely considering that this will be the last game in the Dean Dome for the likes of Brandon Robinson, Christian Keeling, Justin Pierce, and Shea Rush. Senior Day games tend to bring a lot of energy, and they’re going to need it if they want to keep the win streak rolling going into the game against Duke.

As always, we’ll be back after the game with the game recap and some more post-game analysis.

Go Heels!
