UNC 89, Wake Forest 73

Not much to say, as I was hurtling up I-95 during half of this game. Listening to Virginia further embarass the Wolfpack was a poor substitution. But in a week where the AP 1, 4, 5 and 8, dropped the entire middle of the ACC decided they didn't really want that last Thursday in Charlotte off, UNC had an excellent chance to join the futility, facing a team that a week earlier stunned Duke.

And yeah, it was sloppy. Twenty turnovers, most from players who typically do better. But it was also the best shooting since Santa Barbara, and a comfortable 16 point win. Compared with the play early in the conference season, it's a significant improvement, in a league where few teams have since January.
