Their biggest problem on defense is not forcing turnovers. Every ACC opponent except one (Virginia, who shot lights out), has turned it over less often than once in every five trips, and the Heels are down at the bottom of the conference in opponent turnover percentage in ACC play. They've also struggled a bit on the defensive glass - 5 of 10 opponents have rebounded more than 35% of their own misses (including us at 44%!). Those two put together mean both more shots at the basket for opponents and fewer easy opportunities for the Heels (because they don't get as many run-outs from turnovers and defensive rebounds).
