The North Carolina Tar Heels will welcome the defending ACC Champions, the Miami Hurricanes. North Carolina’s season seems to be diving rather than getting better. Despite key losses and remaining undefeated against ranked teams, the Tar Heels’ four losses are from small and/or un-ranked programs. North Carolina began conference play on the road against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Sunday night and suffered an upset loss.
UNC hopes the change that pattern and grab their first ACC win of the season tonight against the Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes dominated the ACC last season, but haven’t been making much noise this season thus far. They’re win-less in conference play and have had some rather devastating losses earlier this season.
