Cochran averages a team high 14.1 PPG this season. F Delroy James averages 13.2 PPG and 5.2 RPG this season, and recently scored a career high 34 PTS against Nevada.

The Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games. The under is 7-0 in the Rams last 7 neutral site games. The Rams have a clean injury report, with no major injuries on their roster.

North Carolina is easily playing their best basketball of the season right now. North Carolina has a chance to win 20 games SU for the 6th consecutive season, no small feat considering just a few weeks ago they were staring a losing season right in their faces. The Tar Heels are 19-16 SU and 12-21 ATS overall this season. North Carolina is 5-11 SU and 6-10 ATS away from home this season, including 1-3 SU in neutral court settings. North Carolina is 4-10 ATS as the listed underdog this season, including SU wins in each of their past 2 games as the underdog in the NIT. The Tar Heels are 7-9 ATS in non-conference games this season. North Carolina has yet to win 3 consecutive games ATS this season, and they will have that opportunity tonight. PG Larry Drew is growing up in this NIT tournament, as his decision making has improved dramatically. Drew has had 12 more assists than turnovers in his past 2 games. Another Freshman, F John Henson has averaged 11.7

PPG and 7 RPG during the NIT. F Deon Thompson has averaged 14 PPG and 8.3 RPG over his past 3 games to show his Senior leadership to his young Tar Heels teammates.   

North Carolina is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games. The under is 4-1 in the Tar Heels last 5 games as the listed underdog. Forwards Ed Davis and David Wear are both out for the season for the Tar Heels.
