North Carolina is on a little bit of a roll as they head into the back-end of their ACC schedule. The Tar Heels have won six straight and finally look like a team that could make some noise come tournament time. It’s been a nice turn around from an ugly start to conference play.
Pittsburgh was the latest victim in the Tar Heels recent winning streak, as they picked up a big win at home against a ranked opponent.

It was a big win as they head into their next task, a four-games-in-eight days stretch that will be crucial for their tournament seed.
