A key Atlantic Coast Conference matchup will take place at John Paul Jones Arena when the North Carolina Tar Heels visit the Virginia Cavaliers. Both teams are enjoying very strong seasons with the Tar Heels currently in first place in the ACC and with an overall record of 24-4. The Cavaliers are 21-6 overall and in fourth place in the ACC. Both teams are looking forward to an NCAA berth and bragging rights in the conference are up for grabs in this one.

The Tar Heels are having a balanced attack with three players scoring in double figures. Harrison Barnes leads that group with an 18 points per game average. Tyler Zeller is scoring 15.6 per game and hauling down 9.4 rebounds. John Henson leads the team in rebounding with 10.4 per game and scores 14 per game.

North Carolina has played well this season on the road and is 5-0 SU in their last five games on the road. The Heels are also 4-1 SU against the Cavaliers in Virginia. At home Virginia is doing very well as they are 12-1 SU in their last 13 home games.

Head to head the Tar Heels are 8-2 SU and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 game against Virginia. Presently the Tar Heels are playing well have won 4 of their last 5 with only a defeat to Duke. The Cavaliers are 3-2 SU in their last five games with a loss to this same North Carolina team 70-52 at North Carolina and Clemson.

As with any key conference game at the university level, emotions can play a big factor. The Cavaliers will have the support of a loud group of fans and that can dictate the outcome. Nevertheless, the Tar Heels should prevail SU in this clash. Look for the total to be UNDER. Bet this pick now at Legends
