What to Watch: The main thing will be getting over the fact that it says "North Carolina" on the front of our opponent's jersey and their wearing baby blue. The team we play Thursday night isn't very good and our guys have to realize that. They can't play scared just because it's Carolina ... as always, the Heels will want a fast pace and the Hokies will want a slow one ... the Hokies' bench isn't nearly as deep as Carolina's, which is why this is so important ... they can't get into a track meet like the did in the game in Chapel Hill ... the other key will be rebounding ... Tech needs Jeff Allen to show up for this one.
