Good Starts

The AP story on the Kentucky game leads with the fact that this is the first 7-0 start under Roy Williams, and the team's best since the '98-99 season. My curiousity piqued, I went looking for UNC's best starts in the ACC era:

Season    Streak 

56-57     32 wins
83-84     21 wins
85-86     21 wins
97-98     17 wins
81-82     13 wins
66-67     9 wins 
94-95     9 wins 
92-93     8 wins 
84-85     8 wins 
98-99     8 wins 

There are another three seasons that started out 7-0 - '55-56, '68-69, and '73-74. It'll be interesting to see where this year's squad ends up on this list.
