They come in as just the fourth best defensive team giving up .886 points/possession. As I said and most UNC fans who watch 20-30 Carolina games a year will agree, this year's group was at best Roy's fourth best team. Heck, when I went back and checked kempom, I had forgotten how good that '07 team really was. Using analytics, I could argue that they were Roy's fifth best team at UNC. They did not shoot the ball well at all, for all of their size they did not get to the line all that well (and when they got there they didn't shoot FT very well) and despite playing the passing lanes defensively they did not turn the other team over very well.
The 2012 Tar Heels were just not that good.
RiverRat.......your points are well taken by this IU fan. And I agree completely. But the "Bible" of college basketball was wrote in Lexington. Us on this site must accept that. Anthony Davis is a stud. Terrence Jones is the next coming of Dennis Rodman. Jeff Teague is like Mark Jackson. MKG is Michael Jordan re-incarnated due to some Buddhist ritual. The college game is at its all time high because of UK. We aint got a chance. But the start of a new season will change that. The game will once again be down, but enjoyable and hopefully the basketball GODS will cast a message. THOU SHALT NOT QUESTION ANY UK'S FANS OPINION. I did my best, but I guess I will be cast below. I am done on this topic and will try to focus on the Reds.....if I can get the bluriness out of my eyes.
