    Miami (FL) 91 North Carolina 88

    Final from Chapel Hill.

    Crazy buzzer beater to win it for the Canes.

    If the favorite wins the remaining games in ACC play, UNC would be the six seed in the conference tournament. Crazy.

    And if they would have won they could have been looking at a 2 seed in the NCAA tournament

    I’ll settle for a 3 seed with this squad. They’ve exceeded expectations thus far.

    How is it that a team that was pre-season #2 in the ACC by the Coaches, finish (expectedly) 6th, and yet, exceed expectations? That is a surprising take for a UNC fan to make for a 22-8 UNC team, likely to end up 22-9, and given they were pre-season Top 10 in the country. Genuinely curious, I certainly don't follow them as closely as you as a fan, so your comment really surprised me.

    North Carolina just isn't a great team. This is a terrible loss and it'll be hard to win at Duke

    Considering what they lost and had coming back, as a fan, I expected a 20-10 season and told people a Sweet 16 is possible with Elite 8 being a stretch. Maybe nationally they didn’t exceed expectations, but as for my expectations they did.
