UPDATE [4:05 PM]: ESPN is now reporting that they are working to get tonight’s game to broadcast on Watch ESPN/ESPN3. I expect GT will use their own video equipment and the audio will come from each school’s radio broadcast team.
UPDATE [2:51 PM]: ESPN has announced they will not broadcast tonight’s game due to safety concerns of their employees in Atlanta. GoHeels.com will offer free audio coverage of tonight’s game.
UPDATE [11:32 AM]: The Tar Heels have finally left the airport. Tonight’s game has not been rescheduled and will go on as scheduled.
The North Carolina Tar Heels have ended yet another losing streak over the weekend when they defeated the Clemson Tigers to remain undefeated (57-0) against Clemson at home! Now they look to extend their winning streak to two games as they travel on the road to Atlanta to play the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Georgia Tech isn’t haven’t a spectacular season by any means and neither are the Tar Heels. Both teams are struggling and sitting on the NCAA tournament bubble.
North Carolina needs to win in dominant fashion tonight to continue building their resume for the selection committee who will note some rather embarrassing losses. From here on out the game plan for UNC is to get some impressive and dominant wins to add to the resume in addition to their three big wins!
