The Week Ahead

Tomorrow night, the Heels go down to Clemons for a second consecutive ACC road game. Unlike in years past, this road trip to South Carolina is a cause for concern. Clemons is ranked 19th in the nation with a 17-1 record. However, the Tigers could easily still be undefeated - according to InsideCarolina.com, Clemons only lost by five points to a Maryland team that recorded a ridiculous 63% field goal percentage.
The most frightening aspect of the upcoming Clemons game is that, like the VA Tech Hokies, the Tigers feature a talented and experienced backcourt. For the second straight game, the Tar Heel guards will have their work cut for them against good shooters with chips on their shoulders.
On Saturday night, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets come to Chapel Hill for a 9:00 prime time game on ESPN. It will feature a hype-o-licious build-up as ESPN's College Gameday broadcasts from the Smith Center all day. Georgia Tech shouldn't offer too much of a challenge, especially since this is a home game. However, let's not forget that the Yellow Jackets did beat Duke last week.
