Before the break UNC took on the #12 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes with the Tarheels acting as the home team. Ohio State’s offensive attack was led by 19 points from Marc Loving but it was not enough in an 82-74 loss to North Carolina. The Tarheels enjoyed an 18 point outburst from Brice Johnson in the victory over the Buckeyes. To date North Carolina has beaten Top 25 teams in the #22 UCLA Bruins, the #18 Florida Gators and the #12 Ohio State Buckeyes along with a soft non-conference schedule. The three blemishes on the Tarheels record right now were at the hands of Butler, Iowa and the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats. North Carolina is a young team that struggles to score at times while boasting the 20th best scoring attack in the nation averaging 80.2 points per game. What the Tarheels lack in scoring and field goal percentages they more than make up in rebounding and dishing assists as the team ranks 3rd and 12th in the nation in each category respectively. Catch North Carolina next week as the team stays home in Chapel Hill to play host to the UAB Blazers and the William & Mary Tribe inside Dean E. Smith Center.
