The ACC /Big Ten Challenge tips off tonight with six games. The ACC won the first ten challenges but the Big Ten has won the last three. The two big games tonight are NC State at third ranked Michigan and North Carolina at top ranked Indiana.
Tough night for Tobacco Road tonight: Heels and Pack will lose at Indiana and Michigan, respectively.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) November 27, 2012
NC State vs Michigan is at 7:30, and UNC vs Indiana play at 9:30. North Carolina will be without guard P.J. Hairston who is out with a knee injury. They will also have to figure out a way to slow down Cody Zeller. The Zeller family wont have to make a road trip to two different arenas like in last years challenge.
NC State is coming off a two point win over UNC-Asheville, they are looking to snap a four game losing streak in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Also yesterday sophomore forward Thomas de Thaey decided to leave the team and go back home to Belgium for family reasons.
