Big brand programs here as the defending champs take on the Wolverines. The Tar Heels just got waxed by Michigan State in the PK80 over the weekend but this is a much more manageable matchup.
The Wolverines are often underrated. Since the departure of the Fab Five they seem to miss on elite recruits but they are well coached and the guys in the program usually get better every season. This game is a good litmus test.
It is hard to get too good a read on Michigan yet. I like the win over VCU but the loss to LSU is a little puzzling. Both were neutral site games but this will be a tough road test. I am curious to see how they do before B10 play starts.
Charles Matthews is the new PG. He could not crack the lineup at Kentucky but he is loving the opportunity to play for senior departure Derrick Walton. He looks for his offense more than Walton did and is averaging 17ppg. He has size too.
Mo Wagner always leaves you wanting a little more but he has upped his scoring and rebounding this season. He will have a nice test as the Tar Heel definitely have enough size to matchup. He should still get his though.
Duncan Robinson is one of the best pure form shooters in America. To win at UNC they are going to need him to make some big shots and soften up things inside for Wagner. If he is off a loss seems for sure.
North Carolina Tar Heels
North Carolina had been rolling along putting up nice results before facing Michigan State in Portland. The Spartans embarrassed them. Michigan State in an elite team but at the same time the Tar Heels had an epically bad shooting day.
Luke Maye got some pub last season for his play in the NCAA Tournament and has followed it up big time. He is averaging 19 and 10 and is hitting from everywhere on the court, except the free throw line (47%).
Even though it is Maye that is putting up numbers it is Joel Berry that will determine how far this team goes. He can be the best point guard in America but he has struggled with his shot all season long.
When he gets his game back Berry and Kenny Williams could form a lethal backcourt. Williams is loving the opportunity with Justin Jackson gone. He is making more than half of all of his shots and putting 14ppg.

Free Michigan Wolverines vs. North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Prediction:
If they could win this would be an awesome resume booster for the Wolverines and I think they are more than capable of beating them. They are not the more talented team but they might bet catching them at the right moment.
North Carolina will look to push the pace but if they are off shooting it won’t really matter. Michigan is very well coached on offense and I expect them to have success running what they do.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Michigan +10.5
I think Michigan will push the Tar Heels and will be looking to back them as a dog here. Might even sprinkle some on the moneyline.
