Two tough, sad, frustrating games against rivals to end a tough, sad, frustrating season. Against State, the ladies were just exhausted; against Duke, well, you can’t do much against 7 for 8 shooting from behind the three point line in the first half. They lost today, in overtime, to Pitt in the ACC tournament, and…

It wasn’t this game — once again the short-handed Heels had their legs give out in the back half of the third quarter — but they did snap their rotten ACC losing streak on Sunday at BC. We have VT on Thursday and hopefully we’ll start a winning streak this time around.
basketball: miami @ unc
The very young, very short-benched Lady Heels are hitting a wall — with a short bench shortened further by the loss of Xylina McDaniel to an ACL tear for the rest of the season — and they’ve struggled continually since beating Syracuse a few weeks ago. We took my folks to see them play Miami,…
basketball: northwestern @ unc
The final was NU 85, Heels 72, but make no mistake: it was not that close. This game was an absolute ass-whooping from the start at the hands of a bigger, more experienced Northwestern team, but I have to say — the last ten minutes, when the Heels finally pulled together and fought back to as…
naismith hall of fame challenge 2015

UNC won all three of their games, though all three were also pretty tough fights. It’s good to see some more of the team, including the much…
basketball: unc vs gardner-webb & oregon
Trav and I went all-in on the UNC women’s basketball team this year, buying a full-season package of tickets and upgrading ourselves to the best seats we could afford — and they’re good ones indeed. The team had some upheaval in the off-season — a handful of transfers out — that leaves them reasonably young…

Five and six. Catching up on six weeks of editing. And posting. Pardon me.

Two, three, four. Miami won the series, 2-1, but Carolina got three quality starts and the offense woke up on Sunday. Progress.
basketball: boston college @ unc
Our second of five games, this one the UNC ladies hung on to win. It was a pretty fun game — BC has some good long range shooters, Carolina’s Stephanie Muvinga dominated inside, and the lead swung back and forth a bunch of times. I love the ladies’ team a lot, and I’m really glad…
