The ACC race is in its last three weeks, and North Carolina is in position to make a run at the regular-season title. Now, Coach Roy Williams will see if his team has what it takes to overtake season-long leader Duke. UNC will start a slightly favorable finishing schedule at 8 p.m. today against visiting Wake Forest.

Coach Jeff Bzdelik of Wake Forest has asked for time this season, and he has asked for patience. What he hasn't asked for is sympathy, not when his Deacons got drilled 80-55 at home Sunday by previously struggling N.C. State, and not now that they have to pick themselves up in time for today's 8 p.m. tipoff at No.?19 North Carolina.

North Carolina's men's basketball team has no four-year starters. Only two players in its nine-man rotation has played in the NCAA Tournament in blue and white. But coach Roy Williams knows his team is experienced enough to treat its next opponent like any other.
