I'm still trying to process what happened the last 4 minutes. Cyclones down 7 points before ripping off a 17-5 run. Somehow, Cyclones' defense force UNC into 4 TOs, 3 fouls, 1-4 on FG attempts. Grill's heroics were amazing, but the extra burst of defensive intensity, after a long and taxing game, really seemed to win the day.
we out toughed them. that's it.

F Huckleberry Hound - almost one of the best things about this win. Glad we could beat UNC with him watching.

While the game was great.............this^^^^^^^, just like 2014 NCAA game made it so much better.

He was grinning ear to ear when UNC was on a first half run. At the end of the game looked like someone shot his pet dog.

Way up there
Hunter and Brockington are overall better players than Holmes, but Holmes is a better fit for what this team lacked offensively last season. His ability to get in the paint and score or create for others has changed what this team can do when they are struggling to create offense.

Let's admit one thing. They are not the best team in the country. They have a bunch of players, but they aren't a team yet.

You're right but like last yr most teams don't want to play them.
