As March nears, college hoops cream rises

When the season started, we trusted Oregon, Duke and others. Then we lost trust. Now, after a few months, we realize we should have stuck with them.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

All-injured team of Edmond Sumner, Maurice Watson, Eron Harris, Chris Clarke, OG Anunoby, Gavin Schilling, Ben Carter, Phil Booth, Jordan Woodard, Kenny Williams, John Egbunu, Udoka Azubuike could win a lot of games. And I know I've forgotten people. Just brutal.

Virginia was second in ACC play shooting 39.6% from 3-point range. That's going to take a dip after tonight. Wahoos now sit at 0-15 from behind the arc. If they fail to make one, it would mark the second time this season (missed all 10 against St. Francis-Brooklyn).

Surprising thing about this game is North Carolina, which leads the nation in offensive rebound percentage & 2nd chance points (18.4 per game), has only six offensive rebounds and three 2nd chance points, yet lead Virginia by 15

To say Justin Jackson is in a rhythm feels like it's understating how well he's playing. Now has 10 of Carolina's 22 points on 3-4 FG -- all 3pointers

Virginia wasting no time coming with big on big double teams. Carolina's Kennedy Meeks & Isaiah Hicks have handled them so far without turning the ball over, but UVa has accomplished its goal by not allowing them to get comfortable on the blocks

ESPN's BPI

Can UNC hang on to ACC lead?

The Tar Heels will finish their regular season with a tough five-game stretch that includes two outings against No. 14 Virginia. These teams play different styles, but ESPN's BPI concludes No. 10 UNC will win on Saturday. (8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN)

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina will officially recognize Marcus Paige and Brice Johnson among its 43 honored jerseys in the rafters. They earned it by being named All-America: Johnson was consensus 1st team All-America in 2016. Paige was 2nd-team All-America in 2014. n order to join the eight retired jerseys, you must be national player of the year.

The already-insane ACC race is about to get crazier

Duke is back among the ACC's top teams with a six-game winning streak, but can the Blue Devils (or any of the other five contenders) catch league leader North Carolina?
