Where: Dean Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC
When: December 28th, 7:00 PM
Records: UNC 10-1, Rutgers 6-5
According to the News and Observer, Bobby Frasor’s foot is the biggest storyline here as UNC should easily handle the Scarlet Knights. My question is how long will Frasor stay out and at what point is there a concern his absence and subsequent return will disrupt the progress we have seen in how this team is coming together. The other issue is that of rust after being off nearly a week and being home for the holidays. That alone usually lends itself to a slow start for both teams. This is another one of those building block games and one of three at home out of conference before UNC welcomes Florida State on Jan. 7 for the ACC opener.
