The Hokies are good, there is no doubt about it. The question is whether they can be elite. A win here would say something.
In terms of talent the Tar Heels are right there behind Duke in the ACC but the consistency is the ongoing challenge. They will have to be sharp in this one.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Hokies bounced back at home beating Wake Forest last week but this is going to be another tough road assignment.
They were very efficient on offense and after playing Virginia they probably felt ten pounds lighter and quicker on the floor. UNC will challenge them to score at a high level.
Canadian Nickeil Alexander-Walker continues to show he can be a lead dog for the Hokies. He had 24 points against Wake Forest and leads the team in scoring.
Kerry Blackshear is going to be important at both ends of the floor. They need him to be a scorer and keep the Tar Heels off the glass.
North Carolina Tar Heels
With Duke beating Virginia over the weekend both of these teams are tied, with those and Syracuse and Louisville at 4-1 in ACC play. All of these games matter.
UNC was solid in beating Miami on the road but they have not always defended their home court well including a bad home loss to Louisville.
The Tar Heels are fifth in the NCAA in scoring even though Luke Maye is not having the season most though he would.
The same goes for freshman Nassir Little. He shows glimpses from time to time but has yet to become a reliable contributor. If he does this team could soar.

Free Virginia Tech Hokies vs. North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Prediction:
The Tar Heels will be favoured based on name recognition and the game being played in Chapel Hill. I think that can create some value with Virginia Tech.
This game is going to have some flow and that will suit the Hokies just fine. Plus they will be geeked up after their last road tilt was a disaster.
