Fun 1st half in Ann Arbor... Carolina and Michigan.

The second half was the opposite of fun. 

 

Carolina's defense was downright embarrassing. 

 

Won't be a fun next few days of practice for the boys in blue.

I liked Roy's mentality after the game.

Me too. 

 

Not to bore you or anyone with Carolina Basketball history, but in 1994, coming off a National title in '93, Eric Montross, Brian Resse, and Derrick Phelps were Seniors, but the two best players on the team were Freshmen, in Jerry Stackhouse & Rasheed Wallace. There was never any chemistry, and despite Coach Smith's best effort, it just didn't work and they lost in the second round of the tourney. The next year they made the Final Four.

 

This year's team is clearly "led" by Seniors Luke Maye, Cam Johnson & Kenny Williams. Freshmen Coby White & Nassir Little are the most talented players on the team by a mile..I'm having lots of 1994 flashbacks as I watch this team. We'll see if Roy can somehow make this a cohesive unit, but right now I have my doubts.

Remember the year well.  Joe Smith / Keith Booth Frosh years as well...  2 L's to Carolina.

Yeah, see the parallels.

It sucks that you mentioned this, and it totally looked like it showed up during this game.

 

That was...sad to watch. And Roy just...sitting with his deep bench...I cannot.

They have the best wins, dominated most games, have a dominate defense and a very good offense.

They are playing like the best team right now.
