Friday, November 9th brings us NCAA Hoops action from the state of North Carolina as the Tar Heels travel to Elon to take on the Phoenix live from the brand new Schar Center on the Elon campus.
Both teams were victorious in their first games of the season, as the Tar Heels beat Wofford 78-67, and the Phoenix beat Manhattan 62-56. It would take a miracle for Elon to walk away from this game at 2-0.
#7 North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels get to be the first team Elon welcomes into their brand new 5,100 seat Schar Center. This also marks the first time UNC has traveled to Elon in 68 years.
As usual, North Carolina finds themselves on the preseason Top 25 rankings, though they are projected to finish third this year in the conference behind Duke and Virginia. And after seeing the way Duke looked in their first game, it’s no wonder they are picked to win the conference.
The Tar Heels were led by Senior F Luke Maye in their first game. Maye had 24 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in 34 minutes of action. Senior G Camereon Johnson had a team leading 8 rebounds for the Tar Heels, while Senior G Kenny Williams had a team high 5 assists in 29 minutes despite not scoring a single point.
With the Tar Heels starting four returning players, you have to give them the edge in this game, well that and the fact that those players have faced a plethora of NBA caliber players during their collegiate careers.
Elon looks to follow up their best ever finish last year with an even better one this year. As it stands they are predicted to finish third in the Colonial Athletic Association with all five starters returning for one more year.
Of those starters is Junior F Tyler Seibring, who led the team in scoring last season with 14.4 ppg, and finished 6th in the conference with 6.9 rebounds per game. Two returning Junior guards, Dainan Swoope and Steven Satna Ana combined to hit 132 three pointers last season, so this team can score in bundles.
Seibring led the Phoenix in scoring and rebounds against Manhattan with 17 and 8 in 33 minutes. Senior G Sheldon Eberhardt led the team with 5 assists in 31 minutes. The Phoenix didn’t get much production from their bench players in the game.
Elon shot 46.7% as a team from the field and 36.4% from beyond the arc. They will need to shoot lights out again on Friday if they want to stand any chance at all of beating the Tar Heels.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UNC has a +11 score margin.
- UNC giving up 67 ppg.
- Elon has a +6 score margin.
