Dayton 79 UNC 68

Well it is over.

UNC made a good run through the NIT. The season had been so disappointing and the ride this team went on was encouraging to watch. As I said in the game thread, what has happened over the past few weeks has been about giving confidence to the players returning for next [...]

UNC-Dayton Game Thread

Before the NIT we were debating whether this was the worst season in the past 50 years. It was neck and neck with 2002 on which season would be rated lower.  After a spirited NIT run, this team has a chance to be the 3rd worse team in the past 50 years. Congratulations! Let’s rush [...]

One More Look At The No-Call

One of the joys of the internet is we now have online replays of controversial calls for bloggers to obsess over.  College Hoops Journal has super slow motion YouTube video of the URI’s Lamonte Ulmer tripping with seconds remaining in the game. College Hoops Journal also does a good job of making it abundantly clear [...]

UNC 68 URI 67 (OT)

Wow that was ugly and feel free to break out whatever cliche you want to hang on to here.

Better to be lucky than good…A win is a win…did not deserve to win but we’ll take it…etc, etc, etc.

It was one of the stranger games I have seen, especially involving UNC since there were [...]

UNC-URI Game Thread With Twitter

No live blog just Twitter feeds, including C.Michael who is at MSG and will be making sure URI does not steal the argyle stripe on UNC’s jersey.  Comments if you have ‘em in the usual spot.

Some other news and notes…

Spanning the interwebs to bring you the constant variety of (Tar Heel) sports…

• ACC Now is reporting that the UNC-LSU football game in Atlanta on September 4 will kick off on ESPN at 8:00. Plenty of time to take off from the Triangle early Saturday morning, get to the hotel to check in, and [...]

Confessions of an NIT Naysayer

Hello. My name is Doc and I was an NIT naysayer.

Hi, Doc.

OK, I admit it. I was one of those folks who thought the season was over and was kind of hoping UNC would not receive an NIT bid, or would turn it down (assuming you can even turn it down). At 16-15 [...]

A little UNC vs Rhode Island history for you.

URI leads the all [...]

Lessons Learned

It is amazing where this team is now compared to two weeks ago.  Following the Duke game most fans were content to fold the tent and bring this incredibly disappointing season to an end.  While the first round loss to Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament did show some signs of life we expected(and half [...]
