The North Carolina Tar Heels have had some bumps in the road on their path to a 10-2 record, including losses in both of their true road games, but head coach Roy Williams should still be happy with what his team has shown thus far with its ACC slate quickly approaching.
The Tar Heels have one final game to get things together before conference play begins, and they get it against an instate rival in the NC-Greesboro Spartans.
North Carolina’s won four in a row, and looks for consecutive victory No. 5 on its home court Monday night.
The Spartans are coming off a good game against an ACC foe – and another instate rival.
NC-Greensboro was tied with NC State when that game reached the under-4 timeout in Tuesday’s contest, which went in as an eventual 58-52 loss for the Spartans.
The Wolfpack were limited to 40.4 percent shooting in that one, which went down as one of the Spartans’ best defensive performances of the season. All five of the team’s starters average between 9.2 and 11.4 points.
The Tar Heels were the preseason No. 1 team in the nation, but dropped a pair of games in December.
The Tar Heels blew a 16-point lead at Northern Iowa, and fell on a buzzer-beater at Texas. Even so, the team’s held serve at the Dean A. Smith Center.
North Carolina’s sending out the most efficient offense in the nation night after night. The team’s 1.89 assist-to-turnover ratio in non-conference play ranks among the best ratios of the last 20 years.
Isaiah Hicks leads the Tar Heels in bench scoring with 8.8 points per game on 66.7 percent shooting.

Brice Johnson has been a force for the Tar Heels on the inside of late. Over the last three games he’s scored 25, 27, and 22 points. Marcus Paige, who missed the first six games recovering from arthroscopic ankle surgery tweaked the ankle in the team’s last game but is expected to be fine.
