What to Know
The North Carolina Tar Heels have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. UNC and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will face off in an ACC battle at 3 p.m. ET Sunday at McCamish Pavilion. The Tar Heels will be strutting in after a victory while Georgia Tech will be stumbling in from a defeat.
UNC took their contest against the Michigan Wolverines this past Wednesday by a conclusive 72-51 score. UNC's guard Caleb Love did his thing and had 22 points.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech was close but no cigar this past Wednesday as they fell 70-66 to the Wisconsin Badgers. On a positive note, guard Michael Devoe shot 5-for-10 from downtown and finished with 33 points and six boards, and this makes it three consecutive games in which he has scored at least 42% of the Yellow Jackets' points.
The Tar Heels are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Wednesday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
UNC's win brought them up to 5-2 while Georgia Tech's loss pulled them down to an identical 5-2. UNC is 3-1 after wins this year, and Georgia Tech is 1-0 after losses.
