If there is anything we have learned in the last week or so is that Division II exhibition opponents and lower level mid-majors should not be taken lightly. Just ask Michigan State, Ohio State and Kentucky. In this case I am not suggesting UNC will be in any danger tonight of losing to Lenoir-Rhyne but I am fairly certain Roy Williams has reminded the Heels are the importance of playing well even if it is against someone you are capable of pummeling by 50 points. There is also a lot to be said for the Heels putting together a top notch effort ahead of what will be a testy game versus this season anointed low mid-major darling Davidson next Wednesday night.
All that being said, I think the Heels give a better effort than they did last Saturday which means they should be cutting back on the silly turnovers and executing the offense more cleanly.
