The UNC Tar Heels will go up against UNC Asheville in this early season college basketball showdown scheduled for Tuesday night.

The North Carolina basketball team continues their early season struggles following Sunday's 89-72 loss to Tennessee. They are now 3-2 on the season.

Brady Manek, the leading scorer in their loss, hit six 3-pointers and scored a team-high 24 points. Unfortunately that was not enough to get the job done as defensively they gave up 89 points.

The North Carolina Tar Heels are averaging 85.4 points per game on 48.7% shooting from the field. The Tar Heels are giving up points per contest 83. The Tar Heels can score but their defense is what's stopping them from being more dominant. 

In their last one, UNC Asheville beat Tennessee Tech in Chattanooga at a Neutral site game. The final was 61-55 as the Bulldogs went on a 12-0 run to close the game.

The Bulldogs were led in scoring by Drew Pember who had a team-high 16 points against Tennessee Tech.

The University of North Carolina Asheville basketball team only has one double digit scorer in Drew Pember who is averaging 11 points per game. The Asheville Bulldogs average 71 points per game on 43% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 69 points per game. 

The over is 6-1-2 in Bulldogs last 9 Tuesday games and the over is 4-0 in Tar Heels last 4 overall.

The UNC Tar Heels are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The UNC Tar Heels are also 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Although the Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win, I think they will be able to stay within the large spread of this game as North Carolina has proven to not be able to lock in and stop opponents from scoring. I’ll take a shot with UNC Asheville and the points.
