Jackets Close Gap Before Half

ATLANTA - At halftime, North Carolina leads Tech 42-38. After leading by as many as 11, the Jackets forced the pace back up again. By keeping the game in transition, Carolina was not able to use its size advantage at the end of the half.

While North Carolina has the speed and depth to run up and down the floor with Georgia Tech, it is clear that pushing the pace of the game gives the Jackets their best chance at an upset. Before today, North Carolina has won 11 straight games against the Jackets.

The Tar Heels have extra incentive to win today's contest as they could be move up in the polls with a win. Connecticut dropped a close decision to Rutgers earlier this week, and Tennessee will be playing that same Rutgers team tomorrow without the help of Candace Parker. With a Vols loss, the Tar Heels would move into the #1 slot.
