UNC-GT Game Thread

Just a reminder what kind of freaky stuff goes on when UNC plays in Atlanta.

In case you have blocked this out or are not old enough to remember it, UNC was ahead by three with five seconds left and Dean Smith instructs his team to foul rather than allowing any of the Yellow Jacket sharpshooters from getting a shot to tie the game. Georgia Tech's Karl Brown is fouled and promptly hits both free throws closing the deficit to one. What followed was UNC hosing up the inbounds pass leading to a Dennis Scott steal and three pointer to win the game. I am in as much shock watching it now on YouTube as I was 21 years ago when I saw it on TV.

Hopefully there will be no such shenanigans tonight.

Comments if you have 'em.
