Not only is this a match-up between teams with vastly contrasting styles but it’s also a game that includes two of the leading contenders for ACC Player of the Year: UNC’s Brice Johnson and Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon. Their performances tonight could help decide the race. Brogdon will present UNC with one of its most difficult defensive challenges. Virginia has won 18 consecutive games at home and is 33-1 at home in ACC games during the past four seasons.
