Michigan State & North Carolina meet in the Carrier Classic

Friday marks the first big day of the college basketball season with more than 100 games on the schedule. Sure most of the games look to be of the "opening sacrifice" variety, but a closer look reveals some intriguing matchups.

Now 30-4 on the season, Belmont has eleven players averaging at least ten minutes per game and nine average at least five points per game. To say the least there will be concern for whichever team draws the Bruins in the first round.
