Davidson-North Carolina: That Good or That Bad?

The #1-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels struggled mightily with the Davidson Wildcats on Wednesday night in Charlotte’s Bobcats Arena. After forty minutes of back-and-forth scoreboard action in what was a borderline NCAA Tournament-type atmosphere, the Heels prevailed 72-68.

Memphis Tigers

Team Personality: Depth and athleticism. Memphis will run teams to death and make less-talented squads look like boys among men. Coach John Calipari often fields ridiculously athletic teams, and this year’s version of the Tigers is no different.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Team Personality: Inconsistency. The Yellow Jackets simply do not have an aura that pervades the team game in and game out.
