North Carolina has a great shot to be a #1 seed but they probably need to bank a few more wins. This one would certainly help.
On the other side Notre Dame should be in for sure. They were good in the ACC this year and just knocked off Duke.
UNC will try to play fast and Notre Dame will want to play slow. Whichever squad can set the pace will win.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Irish got a nice win yesterday. It always grabs people’s attention when you knock off Duke this time of year.
The only downside is that they needed overtime to do it. This is not a very deep team and the fact that they have to turnaround and play UNC with no rest is not a good set up for the Irish – even if they are underrated.
In the win against Duke all of the starters scored 12 or more points but they only played seven players and got just 9 points off the bench. This team is probably better suited for the NCAAs than the conference tournament format.
The difference maker could be Demetrius Jackson. If he can have a big game he could possibly be the difference.
Inside Zach Auguste is going to have to play well and stay out of foul trouble. I don’t like the matchup on paper but ND won during the regular season.
North Carolina Tar Heels
As expected the Tar Heels beat the Panthers relatively easily. They kind of toyed with them in the first half and then ran away in the second.
There is no doubting the talent of this group but they have to play with more consistency and urgency. They seem to be of the belief that there talent will always win out and that is dangerous.
Joel Berry was the surprise leading scorer against Pitt. He has been underrated all season as Marcus Paige continues to be unimpressive.
The question is will Paige be there if they really need him. You want to believe in the kid but it seems like he is really fighting it of late.
The Tar Heels should be focused given that they lost to this group during the regular season. ND is a good offensive team so they will have to dig in.

Free Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels CBB Prediction:
I love the grit to ND but they really should not be in this one. The early action is on their side though so I might wait it out.
North Carolina is the play. I know it feels chalky but they could win this one pretty big against a tired Irish team.
