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.

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

Season Record: 48-26 (.650)
