CHAPEL HILL -- Two consecutive victories has brought a sense of confidence to North Carolina, but not a sense of cockiness. At least, that is what Tar Heels coach Roy Williams hopes.

It wasn’t long ago that his team began ACC play with consecutive, sloppy defeats against Virginia and Miami. Wednesday, after back-to-back victories, the Tar Heels host Georgia Tech, the only winless team in league play.

Asked Monday whether it might be difficult to inspire his team given the Yellow Jackets’ winless conference record, Williams said, “It better not be.”

If new Georgia Tech athletic director Mike Bobinski, the chair of the NCAA men’s basketball committee, wants input on the top teams in the ACC, he need do no more than ask coach Brian Gregory. Only four games into the league schedule, the Yellow Jackets are far more familiar than they might prefer.

In the Jackets’ first four ACC games – all losses — three have been against the conference’s three highest-ranked teams. The Jackets have lost to No. 1 Duke, No. 18 N.C. State and No. 25 Miami. They’re the only team in the league to have taken on all three so far. The other loss was to Virginia Tech.

Tech will play North Carolina, arguably the fourth-best team in the ACC, Wednesday night in Chapel Hill, N.C.
