The #1 ranked team in college hoops, the North Carolina Tar Heels, hit the court tonight at the Dean Smith Center, hosting the 0-1 SU and ATS Wofford Terriers. As expected, the Tar Heels have started the season strong, going 2-0 SU and ATS, scoring over 90 points in both games.
High scoring affairs have become the norm for the Tar Heels, as dating back to last season the total has gone OVER in eight of their last eleven at home and six of their last seven overall. Wofford also has a recent history of high scoring games, with the total going OVER in eight of their last 10 games, and four of their last five on the road.
North Carolina hasn’t missed a beat without ACC preseason co-player of the year Marcus Paige, who’s recovering from a broken bone in his hand. His backcourt production has been replaced by Nate Britt and Joel Berry III who’ve combined for excellent three point shooting and playmaking ability.
