UNC versus UK

Ok, I think we can throw away the earlier game this year because both teams have gotten better. I think it's a toss up either way. UNC played great defense against Marquette and UK played great defense against OSU.

If UNC is to beat UK, we must:
1. Limit dribble penetration
2. Score inside early and often
3. Guard the 3 point line

Should be a good game.

I feel better against KY than I would have OSU, but it should be a good game.

We have a legit shot at winning it all, which is phenomenal considering where we were at the beginning of the season.

UK is playing some good ball right now... That was an outright war... They play like that, and I think they win Sunday...

Whichever team's freshmen screw up less will win.

And UNC just played their best game since the end of the regular season. They are both hot at the right time. Of course we coasted for much of the second half against Marquette....do that against UK and we lose. The big lead had a lot to do with that, but I didn't like it.

They'll be looking for some payback for December in Chapel Hill... This is a different Heels team from then, but they better bring their A game...

Are those the same analysts that picked Duke to easily win ACC regular season championship?

I don't think Kentucky will be an "easier" game for us than OSU would have been. Brandon Knight is unbelieveable, and they did just beat the #1 overall seed of the tourney. But OSU has all those huge guys and they just keep coming at you. I don't know, I just like our chances with KU--I think we'll match up well.

The wrap up show I was watching only Seth Davis picked the Heels. I like it though. I'd prefer the team to think of themselves as underdogs.
