Tuesday Predictions

The Tar Heels get a chance for revenge, Georgia Tech tries to break a streak, and Kentucky tries to rebound.

North Carolina vs Virginia Tech 8:00 Raycom/Lincoln Financial
One of North Carolina's two conference losses was to Virginia Tech about a month ago. Since then, the Tar Heels have been on a tear. Meanwhile, the Hokies have found ACC road a little more bumpy since that big win. North Carolina has too much talent and they are playing at home - they win comfortably.

Florida State vs Georgia Tech 8:00 Raycom/Lincoln Financial
Georgia Tech has lost 17 in a row. A streak dating back to 2005 when they won at Miami. However, Paul Hewitt and his team fell into a little bit of luck with Toney Douglas out and Al Thorton hurting after a bad fall agianst Boston College. Georgia Tech is playing its best basketball since the Maui Invitational. I think this is the game the Yellow Jackets break their road streak.

Tennessee vs Kentucky 7:00 ESPN
Kentucky will have a tough time rebounding from the loss to Florida on Saturday. Tennessee has gotten a boost with the return of Chris Lofton. The Vols smashed Vanderbilt last weekend and are trying to earn their way into the Tournament. I like Tennessee at home with the momentum they have and with Kentucky coming off an emotional loss.


Predictions:
North Carolina over Va Tech
Georgia Tech over FSU
Tennessee over Kentucky

Season Record: 48-26 (.650)
