After more than 30 years as a Tarheel basketball fan who has known my team to give away more leads than I can count, I spent the first half on pins and needles. There was no need this time; the Heels were otherworldly on both ends of the court.
It's mildly ironic that the highest scoring team in the country dropped its offensive intensity in the second half. The defense that was lambasted from all quarters during the first three months of the year never let up.
It's Wednesday evening, I'm finally coming down from Monday night's adrenaline high, and all I really have left to say is GO HEELS!!!
