Brandon and Tanya are back to discuss UNC’s 2-1 finish in what was a wild early season tournament.

NCAA Basketball: Battle 4 Atlantis-Oregon vs North Carolina Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Tanya Bondurant and I are back for another edition of What in Tar Nation! On this week’s episode, we discuss UNC’s performance in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas. They finished the event with a 2-1 record, beating Alabama and #11 Oregon while falling to Michigan in the second round.

Discussed in this episode:

  • UNC surviving Alabama’s hot shooting in the opening game of the tournament
  • Brandon Robinson’s return and the immediate impact that he had against the Crimson Tide
  • The team coming out against Michigan firing on all cylinders before getting demolished...and then mounting a comeback to only lose by nine
  • A heated discussion about Cole Anthony’s play style
  • Garrison Brooks and Armando Bacot dominating the Oregon Ducks in the paint
  • Cole Anthony’s last-minute heroics
  • Best and worst of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament (spoiler: there is an adequate amount of referee bashing)
