I honestly believe Maryland has a chance at this one. Not a good chance, but more of a chance than they had against Clemson. Obviously, there's no hostile crowd, which I still contend was a major reason for the loss. UNC's defense has been more than exposed, so there'll be a bit of confidence (hopefully). Maybe some of the players will remember the "Go back to the ghetto!" remark from a UNC fan last year. For whatever reason, I have a little bit of confidence that Maryland will keep it close.
With all that said, I'm picking the Heels, 87-75. Yeah, I'm a bit of a hypocrite.
By the way, Tobias Harris's dad (and maybe Tobias himself) will be at the game today. Because he can't take an official yet, they're paying their own way. Good sign.
