Free North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Pittsburgh Panthers NCAAB Prediction:
I like the North Carolina Tar Heels to come in and try and steal a victory on Tuesday. Justine Champagnie will have his hands full with 3 diffrent big men North Carolina can throw at him. I think a deciding factor will be the rebounding North Carolina are 2nd in the country in offensive RPG while Pittsburgh’s home rebounding is 326th in the country and may struggle to not allow extra possessions in what may be a tight game.
Both these teams will be looking to stay in the hunt for the ACC regular season title.
