This season, they lost both games against the Tar Heels, including one in Chapel Hill not long ago. Because NC State doesn’t have the size to bang down low with Ingram and Bacot, the Tar Heels will have an even bigger edge in rebounds. Davis is the best player on the court and in the conference. He wears Tar Heel blue. The carriage turns into a pumpkin for NC State as the clock hits midnight. They are lucky to be here at all. By beating them here, North Carolina wins the conference tournament.
