The Virginia Cavaliers will put their perfect 13-0 home record to the test on Saturday, but they face a North Carolina team that will be their toughest opponent to date. This game features one of the nation’s best offensive teams versus one of the top defensive teams in the country. My money is on the visitors as the underdog.
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Previous History – The Tar Heels have won six of the last 10 meetings in this series, and half of those wins came at Virginia. They beat the Cavs 71-67 in Virginia last year, and I expect a similar result here this time around.
2. Tar Heels Scoring – North Carolina has scored an average of over 80 points on better than 50 percent shooting over their last five games. The Cavs on the other hand have averaged just 65.4 points over their last five. They might have more success against a North Carolina team that allows opponents to average almost 75 points on the road.
3. X-Factor – North Carolina is hitting over 78 percent from the free throw line over it’s last five games.
