My postgame analysis got eaten up by the need to respond to the Hansbrough mugging.
In short the Heels showed up, the played great defense for the most part, and does anyone think Ty Lawson was out to prove something? He played extremely well despite fouling out and it is as though he was responding the rumors swirling about him after his eight minute benching against Georgia Tech. Lawson was the engine to this team’s efforts today. Terry and Hansbrough were maginficent, Wright was very good, and the rest of the team played with a great deal of intensity. Granted it is the Duke game but we can only hope this game and the bloody nose of Tyler Hansbrough serve as a catalyst for the ACC Tournament and beyond.
