It’s a key ACC showdown on Monday night in Charlottesvile.
The North Carolina Tar Heels travel to Virginia to take on the Cavaliers.
The two teams met nine days ago with the Tar Heels dominating that game. They won by a final of 65-41.
North Carolina Tar Heels
This game is one of the biggest games of the year for the Tar Heels. They clinched a share of the ACC title in their last game, but if they win this game they will win it outright, and guarantee themselves the number one seed in the ACC Tournament.
The Tar Heels come into this game with a record of 22-5. They come into this game hot having won six of their last seven. Their only loss in that run was against the Duke Blue Devils.
The key for the Tar Heels is on the offensive side of the floor. The Tar Heels average 85.8 points well shooting 47 percent from the field.
The Heels are led by Junior forward Justin Jackson. He is averaging 18.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
For North Carolina to win they need to do what they did the first game, pick up the pace. The faster of pace this game is played at the better the chance the Heels have to win this game.
The Virginia Cavaliers have had a decent season so far but have really been struggling as of late.
The Cavaliers come into this game with a record 19-9 and sit in 7th place in a very tough ACC conference. However over their last five games they only have one win, in their last game against a bad NC State team. They really need this win over the Tar Heels to get some of their confidence back going into ACC and NCAA Tournament time.
The key to the Cavaliers success is on the defensive side of the ball. On the season they give up 55.8 points per game and opponents shoot 39.5 percent from the field.
On the offensive side of the ball the Cavaliers play one of the slowest paces in all the NCAA. They score 67.1 points per game well shooting 47.3 percent from the field.
For the Cavaliers to win they need to have this game be slow paced, and play good defense. They need this game to be in the 50’s or 60’s to have any shot.
