Caleb Love leads North Carolina to dominant win over Boston College
North Carolina has passed its first two ACC road tests of the year with flying colors.
The Tar Heels dominated Boston College on Sunday afternoon, winning 91-65 in Boston. They’re now 2-0 in the ACC after winning at Georgia Tech on Dec. 5.
Caleb Love led the way with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. He made 4-of-6 attempts from 3-point range and is now shooting above 47 percent from distance on the year.
Armando Bacot (18 points), RJ Davis (17 points) and Brady Manek (17 points) each also scored in double figures. That trio combined to go 5-of-10 from 3-point range. As a team, North Carolina shot 47.8 percent from downtown.
North Carolina moves to No. 30 nationally in KenPom’s live rankings. The Tar Heels are third in the ACC per KenPom, trailing No. 6 Duke and No. 25 Virginia Tech.
UNC will likely have a tougher test in its next contest — at Notre Dame on Jan. 5. The Fighting Irish have been inconsistent at times this season but are capable of beating strong teams. They already have an upset win over Kentucky this season.
Tipoff is at 9:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
