North Carolina stretches ACC lead to 2 games with defeat of Cards

24 February 2017

Trend: The Cardinals are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games as road underdogs. The Tar Heels made seven 3-pointers and outrebounded Louisville by 13.

I began the season by saying Carolina could never be as good as a team without Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige, and I am delighted to admit I was wrong. The Cardinals had won 10 of 12 coming into Wednesday. The Heels battled back to tie the game at 14, and the back and forth slugfest would continue throughout the first half as North Carolina carried a three-point lead, 33-30, into the locker room at the half. After briefly falling outside the top 40 in KenPom's adjusted defensive efficiency rankings, the Tar Heels are back up to No. 20 after solid showings against Virginia and the Cardinals.

First place in the ACC is on the line Wednesday night when No. 8 North Carolina hosts No. 7 Louisville. "We played good enough to stay in the game". Defensively, North Carolina is allowing teams to score 71 points per game. He finished with 21, five rebounds, two assists, and two steals.

Meanwhile, since Louisville entered the ACC it has split the previous four meetings with the Tar Heels. "Win games, you don't have nothing to worry about".

It is possible we could see a defensive struggle, as was the case on Saturday when UNC faced Virginia, but more likely we will see UNC controlling the pace of the game, which is just fine with Louisville.

Also, the new app is created to run on old or low-end Android devices without consuming too much memory or processing power. The Skype app for Android isn't great - it's often slow, with somewhat-awful call quality and the occasional crash.

The top scorer this season for Louisville has been guard Donovan Mitchell. "So I think Justin has been playing better in many phases of the game". The Cardinals will wrap up the regular season with games against Syracuse, Wake Forest and then the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

After the game Pitino told reporters the fan was not a UNC student. For us, we just beat a really good team, and we shot awful.

Duke has managed to survive more injuries than nearly any top-level team in the country, even to the extent of losing Mike Krzyzewski for an extended stretch. Many do not realize the Tar Heels are the defending runner up from a season ago. That shot came in the form of a 3 from Jackson to put the Heels up 17-14, and, moments later, a three from Berry that gave North Carolina it's biggest margin of the half.

By virtue of the win over the Cardinals and Duke's loss at Syracuse, the Tar Heels are up two games in the ACC standings.
