Line: UNC -6
Terquavion Smith, Jarkel Joiner, and Casey Morsell have been a formidable threesome that outside of the Triangle has gotten very little love mainly because it’s North Carolina State (15-4, 5-3).
We haven’t even gotten to D.J. Burns… the big man in the middle.
This is an interesting match-up for North Carolina.
We think of the Heels (13-6, 5-3) as a team that wants to play fast but can their guards handle playing that fast against the Wolfpacks backcourt?
Can Davis and Love limit turnovers?
How will Armando Bacot fair against Burns?
This is the type of game where Love could be boom or bust. No doubt Love will get caught up in the style of the game. Will he be able to limit bad shot decisions? Will he see the opportunities to drive to the basket instead of settling for the three-point shot?
