And so it begins...




After a surprising 8-2 start, the UNC Tar Heels basketball team now enters the teeth of what will make or break their bid to return to the NCAA tournament and defend their title as National Champions (hey, until someone knocks us out, we are defending it). NC State is a tough oponent for our first game, and for me, this feels like a must-win. Home games give us our best chance to win, and I think we need to have 18 wins under our belt before the ACC Tournament to have a good shot at an at-large bid. All I know about NC State is that they are good, that they are most likely NOT the 13th-best team in the nation, and I hate to lose to them slightly less than Duke. Interestingly, this is the just the second time in the last 31 years that NC State enters a game against UNC ranked higher than the Tar Heels.
