The Tar Heels host the Wolfpack in Chapel Hill this evening and what do you think the outcome will be?Â N.C. State beat the Heels in theÂ first meeting over in Raleigh and now it’s time for the pay-back to the Wolfpack.
The Heels surely have the better overall talent but can the Pack play on heart and guts and make it a sweep over the Heels?Â The TV and radio guys say the Heels took N.C. State way too lightly in the first go around and now North Carolina has their sights set on making life miserable for Sidney Lowe and company.
I will take the Heels by 12 but it could run as high as 15 and N.C. State will continue their season of over-achieving on another night on another court.Â This is not a game of hope and then if you lose make excuses, this is a war between two universities that hate each other and this game ranks second in stature only to the Duke-North Carolina contest in basketball.
N.C State is coming off a super win over Virginia Tech and has beaten the Hokies twice this season, will the Pack make it two in row over the Heels?Â The arguement is that the Hokies played terrible defense against State in Raleigh on Sunday allowing the Pack to shoot lights out from anywhere on the floor.Â The Heels don’t plan to make the same mistakes that Tech made and this game is in the Dean Dome.Â
The Heels lost to VA Tech in the Dome but again this is State-Carolina and the Heels know that this game is bigger for State fans than it is for the Heels.Â North Carolina’s must win gameÂ is coming up soonÂ agaisnt Duke.Â For this night only, thisÂ must be theÂ BIG ONE.Â Â What do you think?Â I’ll stick to the Heels by 12 and it could go as high as 15.Â Â
