BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
UNC might be underperforming (see: loss to Wofford), but they are still as athletic as ever. BC’s last few games against ranked opposition have shown that their three guards cannot have an off game if the Eagles expect to win. That said, I’d expect the two North Carolina kids, Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson, to leave it all on the floor tonight. If Steffon Mitchell can continue to play at the high level defensively he has been, and the rest of the team can stay disciplined on their switches and rotations, the Eagles are more than capable of pulling the upset off.
