Current Records: North Carolina 9-3; Boston College 6-5
What to Know
The North Carolina Tar Heels and the Boston College Eagles will face off in an ACC clash at noon ET Jan. 2 at Silvio O. Conte Forum. The Tar Heels should still be riding high after a big victory, while BC will be looking to get back in the win column.
UNC made easy work of the App. State Mountaineers last Tuesday and carried off a 70-50 win. UNC’s forward Armando Bacot did his thing and dropped a double-double on 16 points and ten boards. That makes it three consecutive games in which Bacot has had at least ten rebounds.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for BC as they fell 61-57 to the Albany Great Danes two weeks ago. This was hardly the result BC or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 15.5 points over Albany heading into this contest. Guard DeMarr Langford Jr. wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Eagles; Langford Jr. played for 37 minutes with 5-for-14 shooting.
When the teams previously met two seasons ago, the Tar Heels and BC were neck-and-neck, but UNC came up empty-handed after a 71-70 loss. Can UNC avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
