Every game from here on out is pretty much a must-win for UNC if they want to make it into the NCAA Tournament. The last time the Tar Heels played Louisville things got really ugly and UNC managed to escape with a win. Hopefully tonight’s game is less chippy and has better officiating than last time out.
Things have been pretty disjointed for Hubert Davis’ squad all season with high highs proceeding some pretty terrible lows. All of that has been emphasized since the bench has dwindled and the starters have been asked to contribute more minutes. The lack of depth has certainly shown at times in the last few weeks, and the only real contributions from reserves have come from Kerwin Walton. It’s hard to imagine how that is sustainable, but it is the reality for the rest of the season at least.
As always, we’ll be back after the game with a complete roundup for the happenings. Until then...
