Damn this week has felt like it has drug by.......I cannot wait for the games tonight

I think these matchups all depend on what team shows up......

If Mich St can hit and plays like they did against Louisville they can and will beat UConn, if they play like the beginning of the season they will be destroyed.

If Carolina plays to win and does not try to "out-talent" Nova, Carolina should win by 10-12 points.....They come into this game buying into their own hype and thinks they can win, because they have more talent..........Nova beats the ever living snot out of them. Nova is too good to be taken lightly

Carolina will definitely have to keep up the intensity on defense and dominate the boards to beat Nova.

The one thing that makes me feel good about this game, is that I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell that UNC will come out flat like they did last year.

This has been the worst week, I have been nervous all week. I hate Nova's size, to win UNC has to and I mean HAS TO crash the boards.

If the Heels score 50 points in the paint (very likely) they'll win in a route.

Nova's going to punch UNC in the mouf. If that rattles the heels, Nova takes. If that wakes Carolina up, watch out

I agree Nova will smack UNC in the mouth but so long as UNC rebounds and plays their game I think they win by 15. I just hope Roy uses his timeouts if Nova starts getting on a roll, instead of just waiting for UNC to get their head in the game.

That is a terribly tough venue to shoot the ball in, and UNC and MSU have both played there. I suspect Villanova gets the punch.

I forgot about that win we had against Michigan State in December. We won at their home 98-63. I know they are a completely different team now.

Sparty refusing to back down. Even with fouls favoring UConn and Suton being a nonfactor, their pluck still has them in the lead.

Walker is absolutely dreadful from the stripe. 1-6 from the ft. ouch Can't win shooting from the FT like that.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
