UNC Will Be Fighting Fire With Fire Against Kentucky

UNC faces fast-tempo test against Kentucky.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina's travel to Las Vegas was a little slower than they expected, with some unexpected delays, but that's the only sluggishness Roy Williams expects to see on this trip.

Kentucky's tempo will challenge UNC's quickness and endurance - one of its strong suits thus far this season. This Kentucky run game, Williams said, can only be contested in one way: more running. 

Hustling back on defense and holding a consistent offensive pace can allow the Tar Heels to both play at their tempo and control the game.
