UNC vs. Duke: Beyond the Box

Well that was somewhat foreseeable.  UNC had played with fire in their previous 2 games and yesterday they finally got burned.  I also think some of yesterday’s loss is owed to the way the Heels played in the first half of each of their first two ACCT games.  Making back-to-back second-half comebacks takes a lot [...]

Duke 75 UNC 58

Yeah that sucked. The problem with Duke and hating those guys so much is losing a game like this really sticks in your craw. I would have much rather played Virginia Tech and lost than stomach this.

At any rate, UNC just did not have a good weekend in general. It took some incredible efforts [...]

ACC Championship: #1 UNC vs #2 Duke

What: ACC Championship Where: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, NC TV: ESPN/ACC Network Records: UNC 26-6, Duke 29-4 ACC Tournament Results: UNC: def. Miami 61-59, Clemson 92-87(OT); Duke: def. MD 87-71, VT 77-63

So last week these two played for all the marbles in the ACC regular season. Now we have found more marbles to play for [...]

UNC vs. Clemson: Beyond the Box

Harrison Barnes showed us why he will be the #1-pick in whichever NBA Draft he chooses to enter.  Really, the analysis of this game is boils down to nothing more than the fact that Barnes was playing at a level far above any of the other nine players who were on the court with him, [...]

UNC 92 Clemson 87 (OT)

Holy crap Harrison Barnes.

I really thought about just posting a picture of Barnes and letting that be it for this post. Anything I try to add to what we saw today from the freshman really sort of cheapens it. Barnes was outstanding in so many ways. 40 points, eight rebounds, 12-17 from the floor, [...]

ACC Semifinals Open Thread

The second game:

#2 Duke vs #6 Virginia Tech, 3:30 PM

Can the Hokies beat Duke again? I am not so sure with any team Seth Greenberg coaches. The Hokies have the parts to matchup with Duke, it is always a question of smart execution and shots that should fall actually doing so. Oh and [...]

ACC: UNC-Clemson Game Thread

Hopefully the server will behave itself today.

After the near debacle of Friday’s game we all have high hopes the Tar Heel team from the last seven minutes of the Miami game, the one that outscored the Canes 22-4 to close out the win, shows up at tip-off today and plays the whole game versus [...]

ACC Semifinals: #1 UNC vs #4 Clemson

What: ACC Semifinals Where: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, NC When: Saturday, March 12th, 1:00 PM Records: UNC 25-6; Clemson 21-10 ACC Tournament Results: UNC: def. Miami 61-59; Clemson: def. BC 70-47

One of the toughest tasks in college basketball is to beat a team three times in one season. Regardless of who won the Clemson-Boston College [...]

UNC vs. Miami: Beyond the Box

Survive and advance.  I found it interesting that as Carolina was narrowing the gap between them and the Hurricanes the announcers kept harping on the fact that Miami had been in so many close games and had done well enough in them (4-4) that they should have the confidence, and thus, the advantage going forward.  [...]

The Comeback: One Minute Replay

Tip of the hat to commenter Bad Bad Leroy Brown for the link to this video of UNC’s epic comeback condensed to one minute. Still simply amazing.


ACC Quarterfinals Open Thread

The evening session.

#2 Duke vs #7 Maryland, 7 PM #3 Florida St. vs #6 Virginia Tech, 9:30 PM

The question in the first game is whether six days off did Duke or Kyle Singler in particular any good. The two headed monster of Nolan Smith and Seth Curry is formidable but as UNC showed [...]
