UNC vs BC: Running Commentary

Remember, don’t worry, be happy people.

7:32 PM: Some early thoughts. The defense does not strike me was being all that bad but Roy apparently is so pissed with the effort he decided to go with the “Blue” team and boy did those guys come out and play some defense.

7:37 PM: Jimmy Dykes needs to stop calling Hansbrough, “Ty”

7:49 PM: Heels by 16 at halftime. As Roy said there was one stretch where the defense was not what it should have been so Roy went Blue-White and everyone responded. I will say that I see little signs of rust from the break, especially on offense. I also think the defense was mostly pretty good and BC hits some tough threes that were either long or contested. The second half will be tell-tell, they need to come out with the same effort as they did at the end of the first half.

8:01 PM: I rewound the tape and looked at the few minutes surrounding the Blue-White moment and when the five subs came in you saw Marcus Ginyard slump his shoulders and walked slowly to the bench. He knew what was coming and he really did not want to go sit down on that bench.

8:03 PM: Stat Check: FG: UNC-62% BC-42%; TOs: UNC 9 BC 11; Rebs: UNC 15 BC 8. Deon Thompson has 13 on 6-7 shooting.

8:12 PM: I smell biscuits.

8:23 PM: Little dry spell on the offense. The outside shooting has been absent tonight and with Lawson out the Heels have struggled a bit to score thus making the smell of biscuits not as strong as it was earlier.

8:34 PM: Holy crap what a tip out pass by Lawson and the 360 dunk by Hansbrough.

8:53 PM: Heels dominate 91-69.

    I think this is the Deon Thompson we were all looking for!

  2. Tar Heel alum and fan says:

    At halftime BC is on the ropes. I hope we put them away early in the second half.

  3. Tar Heel Fan says:

    Yes it is. This is the U19 version and his defense has been pretty good too.

  4. 52BigGameJames says:

    balanced scoring–like it! marcus having a nce game too!

  5. 52BigGameJames says:

    for some reason Oates stirs memories of some of Terry Holland’s semi-thugs…

  6. C. Michael says:

    Start the game: 14-4
    End the 1st half: 22-5
    Start the second half: 10-0.

    Spurt-ability, much? 😉

  7. Tar Heel Fan says:

    This is their best effort of the season so far even with the four min lapse in the first half.

  8. 52BigGameJames says:

    and an MJ highlight to boot!

  9. 52BigGameJames says:

    Ellington delivered what may have been one of the best passes of the season to Tyler on the baseline–whipped it over the defender to Tyler’s right hand in perfect position for the turn.

  10. C. Michael says:

    Amazingly, this is the first game all season where Hansbrough did not have at least 20 points or 10 rebounds. When 18 and 6 is your “worst” game of the season, you’ve got something pretty special going on.

  11. 52BigGameJames says:

    I’m hoping that was a little by design.
