Counting on a big weekend from: Kendall Marshall. When the record-setting point guard complements UNC's lethal scoring lineup with his own point production, as he did at N.C. State (22 points) and Duke (20), the Tar Heels are virtually unbeatable.
Number to know: 82.3. UNC's scoring average, second nationally and more than 25 percent higher than half of the teams in the ACC.
Hotlanta or Notlanta?: Hot. Historically, Atlanta has been unkind to the Tar Heels, but this team is playing its best at the absolute right time of the year for ACC title No. 18.
