The Tar Heels had a great week with a win over Wake Forest on Wednesday and a big victory over first place Florida State to knock them down a peg. UNC lost forward Tony Bradley to a concussion he suffered in the game against Wake, but his absence didn’t slow the team down too much.
This week should be far easier for Carolina as they take on a middling Syracuse squad in Chapel Hill later tonight. They then head up North to face Boston College on Saturday, a matchup that shouldn’t pose much of a challenge for UNC.
Looking around the rest of the conference, NC State gets to play against two of the few teams who have actually been worse than them in Pitt and Wake. Duke will face Miami next weekend. Notre Dame vs. FSU on Wednesday should be a huge game with the two teams currently sitting atop the ACC.
