UNC 82, Connecticut 76

I'll say this, despite giving up a pretty hefty lead in the second half, the Heels were absolutely clutch in the last two minutes. I think they made every shot, and grabbed every rebound in the last two minutes. Play like that is how you turn a tie game into a six game victory.

The announcers at the close were discussing which team should be ranked number one in the wake of Maryland's loss, Duke or North Carolina. The consensus was Duke, and while I think they deserve the top ranking, I think UNC is the better team. Of course, this is neither the most insightful or surprising analysis you're going to get on a blog like this, and the question will be decided on the court multiple times this season anyway. Until then, there's a half of an ACC schedule to get through.
