Keep it up, guys

NCAA Basketball: Virginia at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

North Carolina recovered nicely from the loss against Duke. They were able to defeat NC State and Virginia by some wide margins and stay ahead of the competition. FSU, meanwhile, lost against Notre Dame and Pitt to knock them back to two games behind. The Cavaliers have now lost three in a row, keeping them three games out of first place.

Heading into the new week, Louisville and Duke remain just one game out, while Notre Dame sit at 1.5 games. UNC can’t do anything about Duke yet, but they have a chance to knock off the Cardinals when they face them in Chapel Hill on Wednesday. The Tar Heels finish out the week with a game at Pittsburgh on Saturday.

As for the remainder of the week, Duke will go up against Syracuse and Miami with a seven-game winning streak. Hopefully one of them can accomplish the upset. Aside from UNC, Louisville will also go up against Syracuse, and Notre Dame will face Georgia Tech.

The Heels have been playing well over the last two games. Pittsburgh remains one of the worst teams in the ACC, but Louisville is one of the hottest. Who will win?
