Monday Is Not So Bad, Eh?

The Monday after the clocks spring forward can be a tough one. Fortunately, we can read all about Saturday night. I don’t have much time this morning, but I really do think Coach K should take some heat for the loss. We might have won anyways, but trying to limit possessions at home, up 2, with 5:44 left is completely weak. Dook started out tight and had no idea what to do with Carolina’s excellent, switch on every screen, man-to-man defense. Still, from the 8 minute mark until the last six minutes, they played very good basketball. Why would a team who was scoring so effectively stop doing what had given them the lead? It is inexplicable. Even if there had only been three minutes left, you can’t sit on a 2 point lead against one of the best offenses in basketball. Ridiculous, and I can’t believe how many writers are giving him a pass.

Barry Jacobs mentions that the Devils had this game. Dan Huffman thinks Carolina was just more mature. Pat Ford thinks Carolina is the favorite. Adam Lucas is emotional. Aaron Beard says Dook started and finished terribly. Lawson thinks he’ll be 100% by next weekend. Tyler was not touched? Lennox Rawlings notes that a rematch is not all that likely. Brett Friedlander writes that the game somehow lived up to the hype. Bill Cole ddoesn’t think we are satisfied. Dascenzo wonders if there could be a fourth meeting. Tar Heel Fan has the best picture! ACC tournament pairings. Out of time.

  1. Is there a blog that has compiled photographic evidence of Tyler being fouled on a shot? Just wondering…
