No. 8 North Carolina thumps Pitt, 85-67, on senior day

Doyle BarkerFeb 26, 2017

No. 8 North Carolina's improved perimeter shooting has bolstered its offensive effectiveness against zone defenses, thereby negating the difficulty against such schemes that's been prevalent in recent years.

Adebayo scored six straight points before Monk added seven more in between lobbing a pass to Adebayo for a 70-60 lead with 4:04 left.

"We keep talking about how we control our own destiny", junior guard Joel Berry II said. Just when a team thinks it's gotten a break from the relentless pounding on the glass from Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks, enter Bradley and Maye into the equation. And then turns his back on me like he's a coward.

Ultimately, this should be close enough that Louisville covers a pretty large spread spread, but home-court advantage-UNC hasn't lost at the Dean Smith Center this year-gives the Tar Heels the edge. The loss puts the Cards in a four-way tie for second place in the conference with Duke, Florida State, and Notre Dame. No other conference is as deep and none matched the ACC's five teams that were the NCAA's reveal of its top 16 seeds earlier this month.

Sometimes hecklers are removed from the building and even banned from future games, subject to trespass charges if they enter the arena again. Pitino is in his 32nd season as a head coach overall, and 16th at Louisville.

"We were beaten by a better basketball team". The Heels now hold the first-place spot in the ACC standings with a two-game cushion.

Pitino, 64, said he hears comments from the student section all the time, but when an adult, who appeared to be in his 40s, got in his face, he took issue. "Against Virginia, it was really slow, and we still found a way to win that one".

Of all the flaws that have been exposed by playing the league's grueling schedule, the Heels can rely on the fact that even when they're not shooting well, they still have a chance due to their offensive rebounding.

Playing without two key scorers - Stephanie Watts and Destinee Walker - North Carolina didn't have the experience to weather a storm that brewed from the opening tipoff. When these two teams met in Louisville last season, the Cardinals came out on top in a 71-65 win as one-point home favorites. According to the spokesman, school officials identified a friend of the fan and informed the friend that the fan could return to his proper, ticketed seat, a good distance away from the tunnel entrance.

On Wednesday night, Louisville coach Rick Pitino had trouble with a fan. "It's an offense unto itself. They've meant a lot to this program". He's the GOAT, far as I'm concerned, based on the fact that he's won five national titles in three different decades, built Duke into the biggest brand in college basketball and maintained it with different rosters and different styles.
