Clay, about the UNLV series

Heard you discussing it with Elson on the YouTube version of Halftime. It was made for TV, sure, but it was also a straight home-and-home. We lost in Vegas in December 1989 (the Final Four team) and they returned the game in February 1991. The time on the schedule was for CBS but it was a home and home.

Right, home and home 89-90 season and next season 90-91. First game was before swc games started. The rematch was during swc play. In 1991 Elite 8, Hogs blew big halftime lead v Kansas with Hog Killer Roy Williams on sideline. Have we ever beat him? Schedule the Heels next year. I want to beat Ol Roy for 1991, 2008, 2015 and 2017.

Williams is 5-0 as a head coach vs. Arkansas, but he was an assistant at UNC when Balentine hit the shot to beat the Tar Heels in Pine Bluff.

Oh what a glorious day!
