The Heels moved to 5-0 after yet another convincing win over Oregon. This was by far the most impressive, as they seemed to over-match a strong Pac-10 opponent.

With Tyler Hansbrough seemingly now close to 100%, is there anything (besides injury) stopping the Heels this season?

It appears they are in simply another league than everyone in college basketball right now.

Their first true test comes tonight against a very good Notre Dame team. The question comes up, if this is yet another blowout, will anyone be able to play them close this season?

Stomped? Really? Sure it wasn't close, but if Jackson doesn't go to the line with 4 left, and McAlarney's shot counts, its a WHOLE different ball game

Then again, ND wasn't making any stops

So much UNC hate on this forum...Love it.

1. ND isn't even in that game if the kid doesn't play the 5 minutes of his life hitting 3's from everywhere...

2. Grow up? Was it a fact that we stomped the #7 team in the nation? Yes. What is childish about that statement?

3. No one has played them close, including some big programs (Kentucky, Oregon, ND)..Why is that such a bad question to ask?


There's a "Duke is Awesome" thread and they aren't in the same league as UNC this year, so how is this such a bad thread??

Because it's arrogant at best, but more likely just ignorant.

I mean, just look at last year.

Davidson: 72-68
Clemson: 90-88
Georgia Tech: 83-82
Maryland: 80-82
Duke: 78-89
Virginia: 75-74
Virginia Tech: 68-66
Clemson: 86-81
Kansas: 66-84

What's the difference between these 2 UNC teams? They added Ed Davis and lost Alex Stepheson and Quentin Thomas with Marcus Ginyard hurt? In other words, this team isn't much better, if any better, than it was last year. So why on earth would anyone possibly think they would run through a season without a close game? 2 reasons: ignorance and/or arrogance.

Kentucky lost to VMI at home and Oregon lost to Oakland at home. Enough said.

P.S. No one is hating on UNC, but they are hating on clowns like you that represent their fan base.

Are you seriously using last year's numbers to talk about this season??

What's the difference between last year and this year?? Seriously, do you even watch sports???

How about another year older and more mature. How about another year of playing together vs. teams that don't have all their players coming back who still need to gel. How about knowing the system for 3 or 4 years vs. players who only know it 1 year.

Do you really think because the same players are there a team doesn't improve from one year to the next??? That's plain ********.

I've asked a question that at this point has a legitimate reason to be raised...No one has played them close yet. They've played tough teams, no one deserves to be on the same court as them right now. And this is without their best defender, who will be back in 2 weeks.

When someone gives them a run, that question will be answered...But at this point...it doesn't appear anyone can play them close. UCONN has the talent, but might lack the experience (minus AJ).

How about this, you go find 1 team in recent history, or even in NCAA history, that went an entire season without playing a close game, and then come talk about UNC doing it.

Considering this UNC team is exactly the same as last year's team (minus their 2 team captains), it's completely valid to point out last season's numbers. I'm saying that there's no way this team improved enough to eliminate 10 close games/losses from their schedule. If you can't understand that, you're a moron. When you throw in the fact that most of the Tar Heels have topped out, and that improvement gets even smaller.

Look at Florida in their back-to-back championship years. They returned everyone, including more talented players than UNC is, and they still lost 6 games their second season.

You've played 6 games. That's 15% of what you'd need to complete what you're talking about. Only 1 of those games have been against a team that will be in the NCAA tournament.

Again, I can answer that question right now, UNC WILL play a close game this year. I would be willing to bet a large sum of money on it.

A big reason that UNC played so badly in a lot of those games was because Thomas was their only PG. A healthy Bobby Frasor and Ty Lawson will help a lot. Ginyard had to help bring the ball up last year because Q was the only player in one of the most important positions in basketball. With that said, losing Zeller hurts and not having our main defensive stopper in Ginyard for a little while is big. Even if we lose a couple games, I'm not too worried about our chances.

Just like a Carolina fan to make a championship thread after they beat up on a bunch of sorry teams. Yes, they are very good....very, very good but they're not going to go undefeated. They play in the best conference in college basketball, Duke is better, Wake is much, much better, Miami is better. All of those teams have size and atheletes. They're gonna drop a few and when it's one and done in the tourney it doesn't matter how good you are there are no "sure things"

nice perdiction on that one. looks like they are about to win by about 30. i am not saying it will be an easy run, because they will probably split with duke, but for anyone to say this team is not better with the 3 freshman and frasor healthy is ignorant. i know zeller is hurt now but still. all the core players have another year under their belt and a lot of motivation after losing to kansas. they may lose a game or two, but to say they will go undefeated is not completely crazy. give them their props as a step ahead of everyone else and stop hating.

Nobody has played them close YET.
Nobody belongs on the same court with them RIGHT NOW.
The are KILLING everyone.
They beat Kentucky, Oregon, Notre Dame and MSU and they won all those games by 20 or more.
Not too mention the shclacking the gave UNC Ashville, winning by almost 70 points. I don't care who is playing who, that is nuts.

Bottom Line, they are very much in sync right now.

Oh and yes MSU got stomped. Lets be real, UNC is playing incredibly well right now, they are on a different level. Can they be stopped? Maybe, but we cannot simply assume that someone will stop them because you never know.

Heres to blowouts and ANOTHER National Championship!

This team is scary good. They are loaded with NBA players. Tyler, Lawson, Green, and Ellington will be first rounders this year. Deon Thompson could prolly go in the second this year, maybe the first next year if he stays. Ginyard might have a chance to go. Ed Davis will be there within 2 years and Zeller prolly 3. Depending on the development of Drew he might even have an outside shot.

The thing about this team is that they all know they will be in the league next year and aren't worried about that. They have two things on their mind, cutting down the nets in March and sweeping Duke. Physco T could be 4-0 in Durham during his career. Whens the last time a Tar Heel had that record?

AMEN BROTHER!!!

Seriously, this team is absolutely LOADED. They played like crap the first 10 minutes of this game and were up 11.

I haven't heard anyone really say this yet...but the difference is the improvement of the superstars. Danny Green's jumper is MUCH MUCH better than it was last year, Lawson is a much better decision maker and shooter than last year, and Deon Thompson is hitting that 10-12 foot jumper with ease.

They go 10 deep easily, but with Lawson, Ellington, Green, Thompson, and Tyler there isn't a team in the nation that can play them within 20 points right now.

Oh yeah, their best defender hasn't even played a game yet!!

It's real simple...they are simply on another level than the rest of the NCAA right now.

It's December 29th and we're still waiting for a team to give them a real challenge. Will it come in ACC play? Probably, but not often.

I think you have to give them a 50/50 shot to run the table right now.

thegreatone08
12-29-2008, 09:20 PM
A Yankee Fan and a Tar Heel fan, ironic. lol As a fellow Carolina fan I will not give you a hard time for that.

UNC probably played its worse game of the year against Rutgers and still won by 20 and scored 98 points. They have a handful of players that could go for 25-30 points a night. Which is why they are just dominating. Some teams would like to have 2-3 guys that can do that, Carolina has about 6-7.

Now I know the competition will start stepping up during ACC play but this team does have an outside chance of running the table. Watch out for Wake in the ACC tho, they are queitly ranked #6 in the country. I believe they have a matchup with the Heels in a couple weeks.

By the way, did anyone see Rutgers schedule for the week? They play #1 UNC, #2 UCONN, and #3 Pitt all in a row, all in the same week. OUCH!

YankeePride13
01-01-2009, 07:16 PM
^^ Yeah that's nuts..First team in NCAA history to play that type of schedule 3 games in a row.

I really thought the Nevada game could be a trap game. But once again, Carolina managed to win by 20+. And honestly, they played like crap for most of that game.

The individual improvement from some of these players is incredible. Hansbrough and Green's jump shot, Deon's post game, Ellington's defense, Lawson's decision making; it's scary. On top of that, they play like a well-oiled machine. So unselfish, always making the extra pass.

Agreed, the ACC will give them more of a challenge, but no one's played them closer than 15 right now. Duke and Wake will be tough games, but other than that, I don't see anyone else playing them close. Miami isn't what we thought they would be, and Clemson always starts off hot and falls in conference play.

Duke once again is not built for the NCAA's. They rely entirely too much on the 3 point shot and are weak in post scoring and rebounding, something needed to win in March.

...and I want UNC to go undefeated going into the tournament. This team is that good where even if they are distracted, they are good enough to win despite that. This team is something very very special, cherish every game fellow Heels fans.

especially in a good conference like the ACC.

what makes you think they can run the table the rest of teh way?

Ok, but see, then this thread means nothing. You lose to BC, then "maybe" Duke, you are no longer handed the National Championship mid-season. I really do not see UNC winning the NC anymore; Duke, at least, lost to a better team (and took them 1 out of 2).

How did it bring them down from that high level? I know losing to BC at home is not a good loss. But it's what that team needed. They have to know they still need to bring their A game every single game.

Lets not forget this is the first team that has played them within double digits. UNC has two dominating wins over ranked teams, both away from the Dean Dome. They may lose a couple more games, and that's fine. Aslong as they have the number one seed come March, and end up cutting down the nets, I'm sure every Tar Heel fan will be just happy with that.

You can blabber all you want about cutting down the nets and such, but when you loose to an unranked opponent at home that shows that it's certainly not a given. When it's one and done there are no "automatic" champions. Is BC a better team? No. Can Carolina lose to most any top 50 program in the nation on any night? Absolutely. It's as simple as that but I wouldn't expect a Carolina fan to understand that kind of logic.

Thirty-seven of these schools have three or more players in the NBA.

In order to be eligible to represent their alma mater in the NBA, each player had to score over 100 points in 2007-08 and be on the current active roster for their 2008-09 NBA team. All rookies from the 2008 NBA draft had to make their NBA team's roster in order to be considered.

It is a common misconception that Duke is not well represented in the NBA. However, Duke is represented by 10 players—second to UCLA's 12—who have met all requirements for this list.

No they shouldn't have. It's as simple as that. When you lose, you move down....don't know what's so hard to understand about that. Why should Pitt still have been ranked behind them when they HAVEN'T had an off night all year. And it still looks like they are certainly better than Carolina.

They are not the best team in the country. I've been on here talkin these Heels up more than anyone, but they are not backing me up. This team has A LOT of problems. They are not having fun right now, you can see it on every single players face. Nothing is running smooth for them. Everything looks forced on offense. Not to mention then can't guard the perimeter.

Hansbrough still isn't back to 100% after that early season injury. Not having Ginyard is killing us because he is our glue guy. He is the second comming of Jackie Manual. He may not fill up the stat sheet but he does the little things that no one else does. We need a lot of help to win the ACC regular season title.

Now that's what I like to see, being realistic. I would say that they still are the favorites to win it all. Even after last night I don't believe that my Deacs are a better team than Carolina, they were better last night though. Every team has problems and weaknesses. It doesn't mean that the Tarheels are a terrible team, they just aren't perfect and they will have more losses this season and they still have a very good shot at winning the ACC title. We all know that Clemson is going to fall off, Duke's gonna lose some and so is Wake. It's going to be a great year in the ACC and as usual there is absolutely no telling what team will win on any given night.

First insightful post you've made. It's obvious Carolina has the most talent than any other team but sometimes that doesn't always translate to success. Right now they need to start doing the little things that make bigger differences and everything else should fall into place.

It's January...most teams are just now starting to get into conference play. Sure a lot of teams play other good teams outside of the conference but they usually don't have good scouting reports on a non-conference team. Once UNC got into conference play against BC and Wake they ran into teams who they've seen several times over the past few years. And considering the Heels have lot's of upper classmen the other teams knew exactly what they were up against. For all of UNC's talent, they play very poor defense and their free throw shooting has been horrid of late (these are the small things that win close games). The Heels need Ginyard back at full strength b/c he's an exceptional perimeter defender and he would have helped in a major against Wake. I've been a Heel's fan all of my life and I still believe player for player they are the best team in the country....but they lost the last two games fair and square and deserved to be dropped in the rankings.

We need to blow out Virginia tonite and get back on track. I want to see this team play like they were earlier in the season. HAVE FUN but be effective. This team goes as Lawson goes. He is turin the ball over a lot more this season then last it seems like. We try to play like a NBA team to much, out score you and no defense. That will work on some nights but this team needs to get back to bein consistent. This is a game for Thompson to get back on track. We need someone down low to go with Hansbrough. Either Green, Lawson, Ellington or Hansbrough needs to blow up tonite and just have a monster game. Tonite is the night to get back on track. Lets go HEELS!!!

UNC finally got an ACC win and got out of the cellar of the conference. It was good to see them able to run the fast break, something they couldn't do in their 2 losses. Hansbrough and Lawson both played great games. What worries me is our bench. We only had 6 bench points last night and they were from Ed Davis. Someone needs to step up. Lookin more and more likely that Ginyard will be red-shirted this year which will hurt. But will provide great veteran leadership next year. Overall, I was happy to see them play in rythem and run the break. Still played a little to sloppy but a win is a win.

Another huge game for the Heels tonite. Clemson is 0-53 in the Dean Dome and hopefully 0-54 after tonite. Ellington needs another good performance like his 2nd half against Miami. If Ellington finally finds his stroke then this team is going to be a serious problem in college basketball. Also hopin to see a big game out of the most underrated player in the country, Danny Green.

UNC is now 54-0 all time against Clemson in Chapel Hill. I stated earlier it was at the Dean Dome but since the Dean Dome has only been around for a couple decades, Clemson has never won at Chapel Hill.

It's starting to look like this team has regained the form it was playing with early in the season. Every starter for the Heels played a great game. Ellington had his second straight 20 point game and added seven assists. Lawson added 16 points and seven assists. Hansbrough had another typical game of 20 points and 10 boards. The Heels are now something like 33-8 when Hansbrough has a double-double.

Danny Green is by far the most athletic player on the Heels and the most underrated defender in the ACC, maybe even the country. He only had 7 points, but did most of the work on defense with 3 blocks, 3 steals, and 5 rebounds.

The Tar Heels are finally once again looking like the best team in the country. Maybe those two loses were a nice wake-up call for this team.

YankeePride13
01-22-2009, 01:35 PM
I liked hearing that Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington took the losses personally and spent hours upon hours in the gym following those games. This team lacks a little bit of leadership with the absence of Marcus, good to see them stepping up.

Danny Green was a beast last night, and the Heels beat a Clemson team that I think is different than the past couple of years where they faltered during conference play. I see Clemson winning their fair share of ACC games this year.

I was harping that they should and will go undefeated. I was wrong.

Those two losses were good for this team.

There was about 3 that were called in favor for UM that were bad but there was easily 8 calls in favor of UNC that were RIDICULOUS. Not being biased, just bad officiating. Like i said, even NC fans from NC were saying they were bad calls. Not having Dwayne Collins tonight really hurt us because he is our only inside offensive weapon. Can't expect much from Jimmy. Haith over coached again and had some questionable substitutions in some moments. This just shows as unstable as Miami has been, they could hang with anyone. Needed this win tonight but now Miami has to win out rest of regular season and win a game or 2 in the ACC tournament to be part of March Madness.

You must not watch any Carolina games. Hansbrough gets fouled on almost every play down low but doesn't get the call more often than gettin the call. He does get some touch calls tho to make up for it. But it's pretty impressive to set this record without using the 3 point line. Kinda like Wilt scoring 100 points before the 3 point era.

no he doesn't, and that's because UNC doesn't need him to. they didn't bring him in to shoot the 3. but thats why he will be a decent player in the NBA, nobody realizes this kid can shoot the 3 and has a mid range shot.

You will see a huge improvement in him next year. He could easily average 15, 10, 5. He's 3rd in the ACC in blocked shots and he only plays 19 minutes a game. Plus his scoring will go up a lot once Hansbrough is gone. He is the first true shot blocker Carolina has had in a long long time.

Hansbrough needs to go off today for 30 points. Help him inch closer to the ACC scoring record. He is on pace to break the record in the ACC championship game. To bad it won't be against Duke on his senior night.

same here man. i live in delaware but i take trips down to carolina usually once or twice a year. i'm tellin you..make a trip to chapel hill. it may be a little costly but i promise you it will be worth it. i went down there a few years ago when they had alumni weekend.

pretty sure i wasnt suppose to be there, but i got to sit and watch practice with all the alumni, met Dean Smith, Phil Ford, Roy Williams, Steve Robinson, got to go down on the court and shoot baskets. best time of my life!!! then when i left the dean dome i saw raymond felton and melvin scott pickin up a couple chicks lol. then passed roy williams in his beamer leavin the dean dome.

Three more wins to lock up the ACC and a number one seed. I think the Maryland game was more of a good win for Maryland rather than a bad loss for the Heels. They have to lose the we will out score you attitude and play defense when needed. This team is still the best team in the country but has shown they can lose any given night.

With that being said, what in the hell is wrong with Hansbrough. Something with him is not right and it's sad to see right now. I don't know if his shins or ankle is still botherin him but he has taken a step back this year. I honestly think it is because of the beatings he has been taking. Everyone says he gets all the calls, but if you watch the games he gets fouled 2 or 3 times on a single play and doesn't get a call.

YankeePride13
02-26-2009, 09:25 AM
^^ It's because they are calling him differently.

Roy Williams has stated on several occasions that he's not getting the calls he got last year. Even an ACC coach (who remained anonymous) said that he's not getting calls...

That leads to:

Not as many free throws
Teams aren't in foul trouble, thus putting weaker players on him
Teams being more physical, thus harder to score

That being said...

Still averaging 21 and 7...

Check his stat line from today and you will see how good he is. Late in the 2nd half one of the announcers said, "the difference in this game is that UNC has Lawson and Duke doesn't." Enough said!

One of 3 goals was accomplished today. It's looking like UNC will finish the regular season as the #1 team in the country, right where they belong.

I must say this is a great, but sad day in Carolina basketball history. Carolina's senior class was a once in a lifetime group. Hardly ever do you see a freshman class stay together for all 4 years. We got to watch a once in a lifetime player in Tyler Hansbrough. Got to see Danny Green go from a bench player to one of the best players in the ACC. Got to see Mike Copeland live his dream and enjoy every second wearing the Tar Heel jersey. We watched Bobby Frasor go through his ups and downs but never give up.

Hopefully this group can leave their stamp on this program by bringing home another National Championship banner!

It was pretty much back and forth in the first half. Duke was up 1 at half. The second half went more towards Carolina. The Heels would get the lead up to about 9 a couple times but allowed Duke to knock it right back down to a one possesion game within minutes. Duke kept it close within the last 5 minutes stayin within 2 or 3 points but just couldn't get over that hump. If Duke played like they did in the first half it might have been a different game. 61 of Duke's 71 points came from Scheyer, Singler and Henderson.

I don't know if that helps you out, if not watch sportscenter.

He can't shoot? He is shooting 54% from the field, 47% from 3, and 80% from the foul line.

Paul may have an inch on him. Not that big of a difference.

And it's because you are finding reasons to throw Lawson under the bus. We got the point you think he will be an average nba point guard, but you find another part of his game to pick at every time you post. Miami will never see a player as good as Lawson.

And if duke is winning what is the problem? Calling smith a dumb *** wow..like roy has never blown up on his players before. You already lost your credibility so not like I can say you just lost it.

You're a dook fan..you think i care what you think?

Not a bad loss today against FSU. We already have the regular season title and we played without lawson and green was a no show the last 2 games. the acc tournament is for the fsu, maryland, clemsons and dukes of the acc. lets go out and win the championship that really matters!!

ur critizing K as a coach...

what about playing Lawson the last game of the season with the #1 seed already locked up so that he can play on a bum toe and potentially hurt it worse. then not play in the acc tournament. i hope he isnt 100% for the ncaa tourney because of that stupidity.

and if u understood how college basketball worked, u would understand that the duke vs unc rivalry goes in cycles. duke dominated unc from 1999-2005 and unc has dominated for the last four years. to say "Duke doesnt matter anymore" is just outrageous. You think unc will be better then duke next year when ur entire starting 5 leaves??? doubt it. learn some knowledge

first of all you dont know what the hell your talking about. Lawson was about at least 90% feeling better the day of the UNC/Duke game thats why he played. He reaggravated it during the game. Plus its the biggest rivalry game of the year, wouldn`t you want henderson to play if he was in the same situation? You also have to remember we didn`t have a good coach from 97 when Smith retired til 2003 when Roy finally showed up. This series always has its runs with one team having a good couple seasons than the other then it switches. Whats really gonna be funny is when coach K retires. Oh how I will savor that day watching all the lil dookies cry. So dont come in here wishing players to get hurt or stay hurt thats just wrong and your a jack ***.

So you are saying his recruiting hasn't declined at all? He is recruiting unathletic white guys. He can't get a big man there to save his life. Most of the 5 star recruits he gets are 5 star recruits just because who is recruiting them.

He preaches flops and floor slapping instead of how to score the basketball. Don't get me wrong they have a good history, but are they really starting to matter anymore??

Recruiting goes in cycles. In the early 90's, we were king. In the mid-90's, you guys had better recruits. In the late 90's, early 2000's, we had the better recruits. You guys have had the better recruiting classes since the Redick, Williams class. If we get John Wall, which is highly unlikely, I like our 2009 class more than yours. But, if we don't, our 2010 class is already going to be great, probably #1.

So your telling me that all the five star recruits he gets didn't become five star recruits until K offered them? God damn, for some reason I seem to remember a five star Ryan Kelly wanting a Duke offer, and not getting one until after the Olympics, and he signed slightly there after. I assume the scouts knew that K was going to offer him, even before K himself did, right?

But, I love the fact that you bring up unathletic white guys. You seem to have one on your team right now in Hanstravel, and two more coming in the Wear's, who by the way, your beloved coach was trying to convince not to come to UNC and get out of their LOI.

Can't we all just get along? The truth is, the Heel's/Duke rilvary is rabid and arguably the best rilvary in all of sports. The reason is b/c both teams are generally very good, if both teams weren't any good or one or the other wasn't good then basically there would be no rivalry. So saying (insert Duke player) or (insert Heels player) sucks probably isn't true. Both teams are loaded with good players, players who were recruited by tons of schools and would be welcome on any other team in the country. If JJ Redick had played for the Heels would UNC fans still hate him? If Hansbrough was a Blue Devil would they still hate him? A little trash talk here and there is great, but sometimes it goes over the top....

First off I said MOST, not at all. It's that way with every school, not just Duke. But it just shows more at Duke.

Our unathletic white guy is a 4 time All American, 4 time 1st team ACC, National Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year, ACC Player of the Year. Do any of your unathletic white guys have that on their resume? No! but they do have a second round loss to WVU on it.

I'm not really worried about the Wear twins. They are more for development (something Duke has forgot how to do). We have Henson and Strickland comming in next year. Not to mention a healthy Ginyard. Oh yea, watch out for the man child Ed Davis.

YankeePride13

Ed Davis 2009-10 numbers = 17ppg, 10 rpg, 3 bpg next year...grrrrrrr....

I hate the Gonzaga matchup, but other than that, not too tough of a region. Syracuse is a weak tournament team that has to be gassed after the Big East tourney. Oklahoma is certainly not playing their best basketball right now.

A healthy Lawson = national championship.

Yeah, as a matter of fact we do. Only our unathletic white guy won two national championships in the early 90's.

You clearly have A LOT more faith in the Wear twins than I do. I think they are going to be like Brian Zoubek, only there will be two of them.

Going back to the glory years I see. I'm talking present teams my man. But as a Dook fan you really haven't had much to celebrate in the last 5 years.

What you don't understand is our coaches can develop players. Not make them worse then what they were when they came there. The Wear twins might not be all Americans, but god knows they will be better than Zoubek. Just another point that Dook recruits unathletic white guys.

Your statement is absolutely ridiculous. I suppose Singler, Scheyer, Henderson, Smith, and even Williams haven't progressed since they've been at Duke? Henderson might just be the best overall player in the ACC this year, but he hasn't progressed at all, right?

The fact that you talk about Duke's unathletic white kids with kids like Frasor, and Hanstravel on your team, and kids like the Wear's coming in is amazing. Sure, Zoubek isn't the best or most athletic player, but being injured for your first two years is going to hamper your improvement, no matter who you are.

That's not all we recruit tho. It's funny you bring up injuries when Frasor has been hurt the last 3 years, yet defend the **** Zoubek. And again, you call Hansbrough unathletic, but the kid produces. Something your white boys don't. Coack K honestly recruits floor slappin douchebags that are good at shooting the 3.

Where to begin...

First, Singler's improved since he's gotten to Duke? I think he's gotten worse. I saw this kid play in high school and he was the best player on the court (in Harlem with Beasley, Rose, Love, Jennings on the court). I think he's a terrible fit for Duke's system.

Your argument for Zoubek is that he was hurt, what's Bobby Frasor been his whole career??? So if we can't call Zoubek un-athletic, then you can't call Frasor the same.

And Tyler Hansbrough will get hated on no matter what. UNC fans hated Redick, and he was the man. Tyler's now the man, he'll get hated, esp from Duke fans.

It's REALLY REALLY hard to argue Unanimous National Player of the Year, 4 time first team all ACC, ACC all-time leading scorer, etc. etc. etc....

Hell if he is that un-athletic, then it's even more amazing what he's able to accomplish without god given athleticism and it shows how hard this kid works to be the best he can possibly be.

You think Singler has gotten worse? I must have missed something about him improving in rebounding, steals, blocks, and 3pt%. The only thing that has cause for concern is his decrease in FT%.

I never said Hanstravel was a bad player, he is a very good college player, one of the best ever. But, it is honestly hard to argue that he is athletic. NBA GM's are very concerned about his lack of athleticism, which is why he might not even be a lottery pick.

Anyway, how about we stop harping on each other's unathletic white big men?

This team is playing with a purpose. They kind of coasted through the season but now know what they all came back to school for. If they keep playing like this I don't think any team has a chance. Justin Watts, a freshman who has barely played all year, came in and produced in the biggest game of the season so far.

I like to chalk this up as another win against Dook too since the Sooners are coached by an ex-dookie. He did show a lot of class today so I can't hate on me. Must of learned that after he left dook.

And just a side not, Dook hasn't beatin a team ranked higher than a 7th seed in the tourny since 2001. And they consider the sweet 16 a success! ha!!

When was the last time you had a good point guard or big man? It's called recruiting. There is only one person to blame for not having that.

just because you have a good weekend doesnt make you the best in the ACC.

Not going to lie, Nova scares me more than any other Elite 8 team did.

They play the style that can beat UNC, penetration then foul or kick out. Boston College played with this style, and we saw what happened there. Then again, Duke also plays with this style and we beat them twice.

Great news is Lawson looks completely healthy.

P.S. Anyone notice Ellington looked a little off yesterday. I'm not talking his shot, I'm talking about his decisions. He shot when he shouldn't have and passed up great looks when he was set to shoot. I've never seen this out of him, he's normally a very poised player. Hope it was just an off day.

People talk about there guards, well go look at the stats, lawson, green and weezy are all better then there guards.. We also have a huge size advantage.. I looked at the split stats between the schools and could not find 1 area where they where better then UNC, and they had an eaiser SOS..I also heard they like to run, well they might as well run them selves out of the building lol I also hate the fans from nova, most of them are a disgrace to fellow college bball fans, just look at there forum and u will see what im talking about..

yeah i too read some of Villanova`s forums and they do talk alot of ****. But thats typical Philly fans for you. I lived up there for a short while and they are the rudest fans you will ever come across. Mostly talking crap about Hansbrough. I guess when your good and not on someones teams thats what happens. Most of them are probably 12 anyways. But they can say whatever they want, the kid has broken records left and right and will go down as one of the greatest college players ever. Hopefully monday he will be flying back home with that trophy tucked under his arm and a peice of the net in his pocket.
