I've been away for awhile, and I apologize. The way I see it, this basketball season hasn't quite been up to par with previous seasons - and not just because the Heels are having an up-and-down year. There just don't seem to be any great teams in college basketball anymore.
That said, I'm back... and I'm all-in tonight.
dook is certainly the favorite, as they should be. They're the more experienced team, and they have the homecourt advantage.
I do think the Heels have a chance. On a neutral court, I actually think this UNC team matches up fairly well with dook. I would still give dook the advantage, but the Heels definitely match up better with dook than, say, Miami or Indiana.
The difference may be Cameron. What might be a close game on a neutral floor or at the Dean Dome may well turn into a romp tonight in Cameron. This UNC team just hasn't shown the ability or propensity to play well in tough road environments. I hope I am wrong and the Heels come out tonight on fire.
Go Heels! BEAT DOOK!
