GAME DAY FACTS
Boston College Eagles (14-14, 5-11 ACC)
North Carolina Tar Heels (24-5, 14-2 ACC)
The Eagles face their final week of regular season play looking at a tough road to even an NIT bid after an OT loss to conference bottom-dweller Georgia Tech this weekend. First up, they’ll take on a very strong UNC team who is within striking distance of a #1 ACC tournament seed. The Tar Heels are rolling on a string of five wins, and feature KenPom’s #7 ranked offense and #12 ranked defense nationally. They have thrived this seaosn under the senior leadership of Cameron Johnson (16.8 PPG) and Luke Maye (10 RPG) and incorporating the spark plug offensive ability of freshman guard Coby White. The Eagles have play ed significantly better at home, but they will have their work cut out for them attempting an upset tonight. No word yet at the time of this posting on the status of Jairus Hamilton who left Sunday’s game with a leg injury, but his availability will have a big effect on this game.
