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.
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.
I refuse to make too much of a home win over a Maryland team that is equal parts suspect to what North Carolina embodies.
And let's not forget that we can't have it both ways: Beating Maryland has become a quasi-detriment/indictment on Kentucky's resume, so this W can't be worth too much protein for UNC.
