Miami has been really good this season but they are still looking up in the ACC. This is one they have to get.
The Wolfpack have one of the most exciting players in the ACC in Cat Barber but he has not been enough to get them much success in the league this season.
The Hurricanes are coming off a home win over Duke so a letdown could happen on Saturday. Also, they haven’t been very good on the road in the league this season. However, they are by far the better team in this matchup.
They are probably better than you realize.
Miami has a nice backcourt combo with Angel Rodriguez and Sheldon McLellan. There is not as much up front but Tonye Jekiri is averaging close to a double-double and is a nifty scorer at times.
The Hurricanes should be able to overwhelm Barber on the perimeter.
NC State Wolfpack:
NC State knew coming into this season that it was going to be tough with Barber being the only significant contributor from last year’s dynamic backcourt. But I don’t think they thought it would be this tough.
Barber is the top scorer in the league at 22ppg and he is so quick that he is one of the more difficult players to defend in America. He is a pretty good floor general too though he dribbles more than he should.
Up front Abdul-Malik Abu has doubles his production and can be a beast but they are getting little from Beejay Anya. He has been terrible this season and the fact that he can’t make this free throws limits how and when they can use him.
The only saving grace is that he blocks shots.
NC State may have only one win but they have been in all of their league games thus far. With a player like Barber they should win their share of close games, but they haven’t.
It is hard to know exactly why.
