UNC and NC State come into tonight’s game undefeated in ACC play. They are both 11-3 on the season as well. Something will have to give tonight in a battle for first place in the conference at PNC Arena.

Carolina is wrapping up a three-game road trip to start 2024 having beaten Pittsburgh and Clemson away from Chapel Hill. State rallied on the road at Notre Dame to take their first lead of the game in the final minute before easily handling Virginia in their last game out.

Can UNC build on their momentum that has gotten them through a particularly rough stretch of their schedule? Can they beat State the way Roy Williams would require? They’ll need to show up offensively and bring the defense if they want to be the only undefeated ACC team at the end of the night.

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

Go Heels!
