All the east coast/Big East homers can suck it. We’ve had our share of bad breaks, but the rule is the rule - all the guy had to do was make some attempt on the ball - but he shoved with two hands and tripped. There’s zero grey-area. Regardless, J. Barfight was headed for a layup or an easy dish with the Hogs in the lead and in control of the game. Our kids made the big plays…Moses was beast-like, Dustin was the X factor, and with so many great guards, we can survive when one or two of them are a bit “off”. The only issue that they must clean up is boxing out for defensive rebounds…no excuse for all the opponents getting inside position when they’re on offense. NC is big, athletic, and talented - but if we take care of business, it can be within striking distance coming down the stretch. I don’t know if the Heels are in the kind of physical shape our guys are, but there’s little chance they (or anyone in the tourney) are better conditioned.
I’d love to see Arlando and Anton kick it into high gear - and there’s a Trey Thompson emergence that can erupt at any time!
It sure is great to be back in the big mix. SOOOOOOOOIE!!!
