Harvard sometimes is able to challenge the big boys and they are supposed to have a good team this season but winning at UNC seems very unlikely.
The Tar Heels rebounded from a recent defeat by taking care of Davidson with more ease than expected. They are good but not great…yet.
The Crimson could well be the best team in the Ivy this season. They might have five losses but all but one have been by single digits and to quality programs.
One problem is that they are missing possibly their two best players in Bryce Aiken and Seth Towns. Competing in this one without them is going to be really tough.
Four players are scoring double figures this season. Freshman Noah Kirkwood from Ottawa is going to have to make his shots for them to have a chance – he is making 45% so far.
Danilo Djurcic is another Canadian who they are relying on to make it rain from the outside. The three point shot is always the big time equalizer.
North Carolina Tar Heels
This is North Carolina’s last nonconference game this season. They beat up Davidson to get over losing against Kentucky. They are still not clicking on all cylinders yet.
They won’t be until they get more from fab frosh Nassir Little. You can see the athleticism in Little but the reality is that he is not a great college basketball player which is why he is coming off the bench.
Luke Maye was a preseason All-American. He is only scoring 14ppg which has many people wondering what is wrong with him. Maybe he was just warming up.
Cam Johnson has emerged as the leading scorer for the Tar Heels this season. His percentages are up in his second season with the team.

Free Harvard Crimson vs. North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Prediction:
UNC will be a big favourite in this one. I would expect something in the neighborhood of 15 points.
The Crimson are going to fight hard but they are just not at the same level as the Tar Heels.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UNC ATS
The Tar Heels look like a good bet. They handled a tricky Davidson team with ease and this should be even easier.
