I’m beginning to feel confident about this team’s chances again. The Tar Heels took it to Wake Forest and moved one half game ahead of Dook in the ACC. We were able to get transition baskets and also got Wake into some significant foul trouble. A nod to the defense is deserved as well. The Demon Deacons were not able to drive like they did in Winston Salem last Sunday and when they did get into the lane, help arrived. After watching us struggle to beat FSU and losing to Dook, I really did not think the basketball team could survive 5 games without Tywon Lawson. The first two were a bit sketchy, but three straight decisive wins have made me wonder if the defense has turned a corner? The tempo free stats are showing that we have improved. Pyscho T has also really stepped up since Lawson’s absence, averaging 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 steals per game. He’s also got a ridiculous FG% of 61% (eFG 60%). His performances have made him the favorite for player of the year honors. He deserves it in my completely biased opinion. The 26 and 2 Heels have a week off before traveling to Boston on Saturday. Hopefully Tywon and Deon can get healthy for March. Tar Heel Fan didn’t like the turnovers. Andrew Jones notices the efficiency.

I’m not the only one mailing it in. Roy was looking sharp. Hurricanes get big win in a very physical game. Sign of the Apocalypse? Lucky Qatar. Premiership lowlights.
