After UNC’s loss to Duke in the ACC Tournament semifinals, the Tar Heels’ heads weren’t down, but up. Why? After going to toe-to-toe with the Blue Devils, they know that they have a shot at something special.
"Shooting the ball well is just icing on the cake"
For the second consecutive game, UNC shot poorly from beyond the 3-point arc, the icing on the cake to UNC’s blend of rebounding, pace of play, and points in the paint. And for the second consecutive game, it didn’t matter, as UNC rushed past FSU.
UNC stuffed themselves full early in a two-game slate in Vegas, so much so the Tar Heels couldn’t recover against Texas. But like a second wind before dessert, Carolina bounced back to finish strong, and maybe find themselves in the process.
