Miami at UNC

Where: Dean E. Smith Center, Chapel Hill, NC When: January 31st, 7:00 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 19-2, 5-1 ACC; Miami 9-12, 2-5 ACC

This should be a glorified live action scrimmage. Miami does not the depth, quality of depth, offensive power or defensive tact to stop UNC from doing what they want to do [...]

Random Thoughts From Watching/Listening to ACC Basketball

I caught some of Duke-BC game on Duke’s radio network and I swear if Bob Harris does not embellish every instance of physical contact made on a Duke player as though someone was committing felony assault on them. At one point he said a BC player pushed a Duke player “out of the way” [...]

Turnovers and Defense

The assertion has been made by learned analysts and myself that UNC has a turnover problem. It just seems that way while watching the games that UNC gives the ball up far too often and then games like the Virginia Tech loss are seared in your head as the way things are. Then again the [...]

Kzryzewski Thinks Playing Too Much on Sunday is a Burden

Let me offer a disclaimer here. I only caught a snippet of the interview Mike Kzryzewski was giving on the Duke Radio Network which prior to the game with Boston College and it may include context that might change my take on this. However here is a paraphrase of what I heard him say:

K [...]

UNC 92 Arizona 64

I would imagine that everyone outside of Tar Heel Nation collectively cringed at the manner in which UNC absolutely dismantled Arizona on their home court Saturday.  Especially when you consider the following factors were true heading into the game.

 Second leading scorer Brandan Wright and top individual defender Marcus Ginyard were both sidelined with a [...]

UNC at Arizona

Where: McKale Center, Tuscon, AZ When: January 27th, 1:00 PM TV: CBS Records: UNC 18-2, Arizona 14-5

Win or lose this game will be incredibly important in the grand scheme of the season pointing towards March.  UNC will be on the road in a hostile environment playing a team which will likely end up being [...]

Guidelines for Celebration

Celebrations in college basketball have long been taken for granted that is until Mike Krzyzewski decided to poo-poo on Virginia Tech’s Zabian Dowdell for his exuberance in the wake of the Hokies’ win in Durham. This of course was exposed as total hyprocrisy when Duke knocked off Clemson on Thursday. I really cannot think of [...]

Was the Clock Cooked at Cameron?

Yeah, that was a fairly hokey title.

Duke vs Clemson was the big ACC game of the week and it did not disappoint right down to an incredible five points in 13 seconds rally from Clemson which undoubtedly reminded older Duke fans of the infamous eight points in 17 seconds from UNC in 1975. Anyhow, [...]

UNC 88 Wake Forest 60

Basically it went like this.  Wake Forest hung in there relatively close for most of the game until the relentless storm which is the Tar Heel depth and talent turned the game into a laugher.  UNC still has turnover problems which seem to derive themselves from the penchant of this young crew to make the [...]
