The opening game of the evening session in Greensboro, North Carolina features a solid match-up between the NC State Wolfpack and Miami Hurricanes, and it should be more than enough to keep the attention of the feverish crowd. Miami was surprisingly tested by Virginia Tech in their ACC opener, but while they were working, NC State was resting and preparing.
The Wolfpack are led by ACC Player of the Year T.J. Warren, and with his performance, NC State has a top-50 offense nationally. They are far from a one-trick pony, but Warren is the single biggest key to the game on either side, and if Miami can limit him, they’ll be in good position to grab an “upset” win.
Miami has been better on the defensive end this season, though, and that lines up well for the ‘Canes. In addition, they have won 5 of their last 8 games, and there is a real argument that Miami is playing their best basketball of the year in anticipation of this one.
