North Carolina started ACC conference play without a win and dropping their first three games. Saturday, they finally grabbed their first conference win against the Boston College Eagles at home, but tonight they’re in Virginia to take on the always dangerous Virginia Cavaliers. Especially when playing in Charlottesville!
Freshman Kennedy Meeks had a big game against Boston College and the Tar Heels are going to need another one from him tonight – offensively and defensively, but his defense needs to come up big tonight.
