While North Carolina continues to wait for a decision from James Michael McAdoo, the Tar Heels did suffer an early-entry blow late Monday night. Swingman Reggie Bullock is heading to the NBA, the school announced on Tuesday.
Roy Williams was frustrated after his team was dominated in the first 20 minutes at NC State. Then came a shellacking at Miami -- and the North Carolina head man decided to make a move. Small ball has worked in Chapel Hill.
Just another game. Try telling that to anyone involved in the rivalry. North Carolina came in unranked and on the proverbial NCAA bubble, but the Tar Heels gave Duke everything it could handle on its home floor. The Blue Devils came out on top, but desperately miss senior Ryan Kelly.
Miami made enough 3-pointers early (and late) to create a score so lopsided that the outcome of this ACC showdown was never really in doubt. But the play of the afternoon actually originated from inside the arc.
North Carolina isn't much fun to watch these days. They are coming off a loss down in Raleigh against NC State and playing down the road from me in Boston. But I'm taking a pass on seeing Roy Williams' team -- because it'll be more fun to see Marshall Henderson take on Kentucky from my couch.
