Late surge allows Heels to take down Louisville

Old friends Roy Williams and Rick Pitino will lead their teams into a key ACC game Wednesday night in Chapel Hill N.C

"Defence is", Mitchell said. We've just got to pick it up and move on to the next game. Before fans knew it, the Cardinals were back within two before North Carolina went on a 7-0 run, capped off by the jumper from Meeks. "That's what we stressed past year when we got down around this area".

The Tar Heels blew out North Carolina State, 97-73, on the road in their next game, and followed that up with an impressive 65-41 win over the Virginia Cavaliers as 6.5-point favorites at home.

Pitino is in his 32nd season as a head coach overall, and 16th at Louisville. "We played good enough to stay in the game, but not good enough to win the game". I don't know what was said.

UNC's RPI rating moved up to No. 3 following the Louisville win - perfectly positioning the Heels for a top seed. Mitchell drew a flyout and groundout from the next two batters to get out of the inning. Louisville likely lost out on any shot at an ACC title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, which sucks, but they would nearly certainly still be a No. 2 seed if the Big Dance started tomorrow. Anas Mahmoud had eight points, five rebounds and four blocks.

Since Jan. 7, the Cardinals are 10-2 SU and 8-4 ATS in a stretch that includes solid wins at home over Duke, Clemson, and Miami. Hitting six of his next nine shots for a team-leading 21 points.




ESPN video of the incident showed Pitino walking off the court when he suddenly turned back and started shouting toward the nearby seats.

What does it say about this team to be two games up in the ACC when the league is so strong? Both Pitino and Williams brought up the incident afterward, with Williams apologizing to Pitino in his postgame comments.

"Just heard about one fan being ejected and being sent out at halftime for yelling something at Rick", said Williams. "I take it from the students all the time, you expect it from the students". But from an adult?

Pitino said last week he was hopeful Hicks would be back for Louisville's game Saturday vs. Virginia Tech, but he walked back that projection on Friday, saying Hicks could "possibly" return for this coming Sunday's game vs. Syracuse. And he is a coward. Pitino said. "And he is a coward, but North Carolina is a classy place and he doesn't speak for the rest of the people".
