#1 UNC vs #5 USC

What: NCAA Tournament East Regional Semifinal
Where: Continental Airlines Arena, East Rutherford, NJ
When: March 23rd, approx. 9:57 PM
Records: UNC 30-6; USC 25-11
NCAA Tournament Results: UNC-def. #16 Eastern Ky, #9 Michigan State; USC-def. #12 Arkansas, #4 Texas.

I just remember that in 2005 it was the 10 PMish game and UNC faced #5 seeded Villanova in a game that had Heels fans everywhere pulling our hair and possibly our toenails out before we finally squeaked it out.

This game will probably be the same deal, I just hope the result is the same as two years ago. As of this posting, Reyshawn Terry's condition is unknown and I really hope he is up to speed because the last thing I want is to have to explain to my son 10 years from now when we are watching the 2017 NCAA Tournament when they show some highlights from 2007 that part of the reason UNC lost was because Reyshawn Terry was sick, someone got in foul trouble, and USC could not miss. I heard way too many of those stories from my father about 1977, 1984 etc. so if we could just skip all that and win I would greatly appreciate it.

Just win baby...survive and advance...git-r-done...whatever works just keep this ball rolling.

Live blogging commences later this evening.
