For the second year in a row, it is the same story for the North Carolina Tar Heels. They’ve started 0-2 in the ACC play and have a big game coming up that is a must win to save their season. Instead of playing a must win game against Florida State, they’re up against the undefeated and 2nd ranked Syracuse Orange.

Odds are heavily against North Carolina but that doesn’t change the fact they’ve come prepared when playing the nation’s best teams. They are undefeated against ranked top-25 teams this season: Michigan State, Louisville, and Kentucky. However, they’re playing some of the worst basketball that any teams has under Roy Williams. It could haunt them this afternoon in New York!
