The 2013 Big Ten/ACC Challenge brings us a tremendous match up on Wednesday between the unbeaten and number one-ranked Michigan State Spartans and the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Michigan State has started their season on a 7-0 run and have certainly looked the part of the best team in the country. They’re one of the more complete teams you’ll find out there, getting significant contributions from everyone on the court.
North Carolina comes in to this one unranked and reeling after being upset by UAB the other night. If anything so far in this young season, the identity of this Carolina team is a bit confusing. Their two losses were both upsets, yet they were able to defeat the then third-ranked Louisville Cardinals a few weeks ago.
It seems that they can turn it on at any time, and Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo knows this:
“Look at their pedigree, their reputation and the number of great players they have,” Izzo said. “They’ll be one of the more well-coached teams that come in here.”
