Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Monday, March 01, 2010

The Tar Heels are having a down year, but don't take them for granted: last night they beat Duke.

De Graffenreid scored 22, which isn't unusual, though plenty of other stats were: the visiting Dukies shot under 27% from the floor (performing with equal inaccuracy in both halves), and performed almost as badly from the line.

Maybe it wasn't the game a neutral observer would want to have watched-- but coach Hatchell will take it. "We're not finished yet," she said.

The upset means the Heels go into the ACC tournament fresh off their signature victory for the year; they've also defeated St. John's, a win that looks better now than it did three months ago.
