North Carolina 75 Kentucky 73

Page 10 of Final. What an ending. But not a good time to have a bad game. Can't go almost 5 minutes and not score when you were up 5.... 458 comments | 14843 Views | Go to page 1 →

    I was surprised at how little Hawkins played down the stretch.

He does what it takes most coaches 4 years to do. He turns teams into brothers and he does it year after year. Absolutely amazing.
    Agree

    2 of those were brutal. Very fortunate to go in for UNC. Highly contested. Willis missed a corner 3 on the other end after that.

    I have to agree about the difficult shots. When UK went up by 5 Pinson drove the left baseline and made a shot from practically behind the backboard. And Jackson followed that with an off balance tough shot in the lane that bounced around and through. Those both were not easy shots. And Barry made a driving hook type shot that went nearly to the top of the backboard and went in.

    That stretch were the Cats were up 5 and then were outscored 10-0 was a killer. Put UK behind and playing catch-up the rest of the game.

    I felt so good about their chances when they went up 5 and then in a blink of an eye they went down 5, obvious statement but huge shift there! Willis had that Corner 3 that is usually money for him and when he missed that I knew it would be tough sledding to come back. Credit to them for fighting and tying it up. After that 3 Cal said he should have called a timeout, and looking back I agree with that but part of me thinks you let them play. That's a tough call there. I hate how the game ended but loved the fight they showed for all 40 minutes. Unfortunately, sometimes that happens.

    PLEASE BAM and BRISCOE stay one more year. Pretty obvious that Fox and Monk are gone but I would love for these two to stick around!

    Anyone think SKJ transfers, and maybe Gabriel??

    Why would Gabriel transfer?

    I feel the game was officiated way to tight on both sides. When both teams are in a double bonus with 8minutes in the first half There is an issue. UNC earned the win for sure. Go GAMECOCKS!!!!
    It was a 2-point game that was won on essentially a buzzer beater. Kentucky very easily could have and probably should have won the game.

    Hats off to Cal and his team. Six weeks ago, they were a first weekend bounce. By this afternoon, they had a legitimate shot to win it all.

    I guess we really need to trust "the process". They gelled nicely. Great season.

    I take that as he's saying goodbye to everyone else that's leaving.

    I agree. I believe UNC had more talent, depth and experience.

    Both teams have won one game against each other on neutral courts on basically last second shots. So don't think we can say either one is the better team. UNC was just the better team on this day. To bad there can't be a game three.

    This would never happen. But it would be cool if starting at the elite 8. They made it a best of 3 series the rest of the way.
