UNC Stunningly Comes From Nowhere to Shock Duke


Since when is North Carolina beating Duke a monumental upset?

Last I checked the Tar Heels were the red hot fifteenth ranked team in the country, not to mention the defending national champions. I know that Duke is the No. 1 team in the nation, but this is one of the biggest rivalries in American sports.

It can’t really be a rivalry when one side dominates.

And yes, maybe UNC is led by freshmen, but they aren’t going through what St. Joseph’s had to go through after Delonte West and Jameer Nelson left. Excuse the cliché but you reload when you’re at Chapel Hill.

Anyways, I didn’t watch much of the game and I’m actually kind of glad I missed Dick Vitale trying to have a "Do You Believe in Miracles?" moment on that Lee Melchionni to DeMarcus Nelson pass.

"What a play, what a play, what a play, what a play! Hustle, hustle, dive on the floor! How badly do they want it?"

The extra camera features didn’t do anything for me. I am most definitely a Duke hater so the Cameron crazy-cam made me furious. The above the rim-cam reminded me of watching a video game replay.

Tyler Hansbrough was by far the best player on the court and that’s why his team was victorious. I don’t think this loss necessarily hurts the Blue Devils. The game just proved two points:

  1. North Carolina is better than you thought.
  2. When your best player has an off night the way J.J. Redick did, it’s going to be tough to win. Obviously.
