Click below for live Twitter coverage and analysis of Friday night's Northern Kentucky - North Carolina men's basketball game. The Norse face the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill.

J.P. Tokoto’s confidence has blossomed in recent weeks. He is coming off the best game of his time at UNC: 22 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks and five steals during the Tar Heels’ overtime victory against Davidson on Saturday.

UNC made a season-high 34 free throws against Davidson, and 11 of 12 in overtime. Still, UNC is shooting 61.3 percent from the free-throw line for the season. If that pace holds, this would be the worst free-throw shooting team in school history.

Northern Kentucky reclassified to Division I last season. All 12 of its players have started at various times this season, and 11 average at least 12 minutes of playing time per game.
