The Heels are set to battle it out with the Fighting Irish in hopes to earn their first ACC win of the season.

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The North Carolina Tar Heels are just moments away from taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. This game was quite a surprise to all of us, as it was scheduled to replace the postponed Syracuse game due to COVID-19 protocol. The Tar Heels are coming off of a disappointing loss to Georgia Tech thanks to some late game heroics from Jose Alvarado. As for the Irish, they are looking to rebound after a disappointing loss to the Virginia Cavaliers.

For the second time this season the Tar Heels will have to figure out how to handle their opponent with little time to prepare. This time off would’ve actually been perfect for the Heels to figure out how to solve some of their issues with turnovers and defensive lapses, but this season doesn’t exists with the purpose of being kind and fair. Everyone is going to have to do their part to earn their first ACC win, or else things will only get that much harder as we get deeper into the conference schedule.

As always, we’ll be back with you after the game with some post-game analysis. Until then, Go Heels!
