Game Preview

While RJ Davis’ 42 points were historic and ground-breaking in a victory over Miami on Monday, No. 9 North Carolina will aim for more of a team effort on Saturday when it hosts rival North Carolina State in Chapel Hill.

North Carolina (22-6, 14-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) is coming off its third straight win, one in which Davis made his case for ACC Player of the Year even stronger. He carried the Tar Heels to a 75-71 victory over Miami as the only player on his team to score in double figures, on 14-of-22 shooting from the field.

The 42 points were not only a career high for Davis — who leads the ACC in scoring this season with an average of 21.7 points per game — but it also broke a scoring record for the Dean Smith Center, previously set by Tyler Hansbrough with 40 points in 2006. It was the most points any Tar Heel had scored in regulation since Charlie Scott had 43 in 1970.
