ACC Title Game: Prediction

By Jeff Lippman - March 04, 2007

Although the entire arena, even the North Carolina radio crew sitting next to and the Duke fans behind me, are rooting for State, I must say I don't expect the Wolfpack to win.

Yes, an ACC championship would be well deserved and fitting, but the fact is, North Carolina is the defending champs, they've been here before and they are the better team.

Duke was the better team, and they lost. But North Carolina is also the fresher team, having only played two games to get here instead of State's three.

This is going to be a close game, played on pure adrenaline and feelings for the N.C. State team and that will keep them in it until the end. But in the end, I see North Carolina taking a lead and turning it into a double-digit win on free throws.

Here's my final score prediction: (I hope I'm wrong) UNC 81, N.C. State 71.

When Kay Yow entered the court, the fans erupted. The Tar Heels followed close after and Ivory Latta put her hand up acknowledging the crowd. They're not cheering for you, Ivory. Not this time.
