Too bad we have people in diapers reading this site. I listened to innuendo about “V” running a crooked program for years in the aftermath of his death. These things were said even though there was a full report on our infractions available for all to read, that clearly told a different story. A lot of that has faded with Jimmy V Week and such.
Dean Smith was an outstanding basketball coach, that is not open for discussion. By all accounts from his players he was a good man as well. In the aftermath of his passing, he has gotten a complete pass for his establishment of a corrupt system that granted his teams a serious competitive advantage for years. The one comment made in parallel to the long running joke about V selling our souls for the ’83 Title was nothing that should have offended anyone who has any knowledge of these two schools and their histories. I found it ironic that this “controversy” fired up just days after the Outrage thread.
As for the game, it was a classic. Our work on the boards, and BJ Anya’s ownership of the paint on defense were beautiful. Cat Barber looked like a leader; a poised, confident, talented leader. Turner and Lacey made enough plays at the right times to keep the opposition at bay. All this does is give us an opportunity to close the deal and make for a boring, non-suspenseful Selection Sunday. Go Pack! Beat BC
