Wake out-hustled and dare I say out-coached UNC.  If UNC finished on those offensive boards, UNC could have had a 6 points win.  If Wake would have hit their free throws, it could have been a 20 point game.  

 

Roy Williams is such an overrated coach.  

 

No he's not.  He isnt the strongest in-game coach (doesnt use timeouts well, his lineups dont always make sense), but everybody who knows anything about basketball already knows this about Roy. 

 

Which makes him properly rated as a very good college coach

So Roy is an overrated coach because he let Wake run backdoor cuts?

 

Great in-depth analysis of Roy's strengths and weaknesses

One of the Wake players said they had been planning for that all week.  They knew UNC tended to overplay, and they had been working on more passing from the big men.  UNC did sink back into a zone a few times, but Wake was still able to penetrate with relative ease, which was a good thing because after the first two, they were not able to make a three the rest of the night.    UNC got a lot of fouls called on them, might have made them a bit gunshy on the defensive end.

The problems you're seeing with UNC are typical of young, talented teams...  They're starting 2 freshmen, 2 sophomores and 1 junior...  Inconsistent production is to be expected...  They'll settle down, and eventually be a very good team...  Ebbs and flows of college basketball...

The NCAA is such a fuging joke. We are still waiting on their decision regarding Chris Walker's eligibility. It's just getting absurd.

UVA is actually a pretty good team. Well coached and very disciplined, they play good defense.  If their shots are falling, they will give most teams a hard time. 

 

I am headed to the Wake/NCSU game in about 30 minutes.  Wake plays well at home, and NCSU seems to play well after a loss, so maybe it will be a good game tonight.  Of course, as long as the Deacs win, it will be a good game, and maybe they will help me to forget that football game sunday.  One can hope anyway.  Go Deacs.  :)

    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
