    Big game for both in a very contentious rivalry. Should be fun!

    Everything about Cat Barber seems fictional. Like, a character in a basketball movie that is so obviously a character. His build, his hair, his name...

    Anyway, he's fun to watch. Reminds me a little of Ish Smith

    Dean Dome's loud tonight, I thought I'd like these Carolina throwbacks much more than I do and Justin Jackson can look so smooth.

    Tokoto could be soooo good defensively. He literally just stood straight up and let Lacey go right by him after 30 seconds of good defense right there.

    Team looks pretty terrible right now. Nothing much going right but only down 1. Our bigs have looked awful so far.

    This game is proof that higher possessions does not necessarily mean higher scoring affairs.

    Weird game. Feels frantic and chaotic, but it seems 90% of State possessions have been 30+ seconds.

    That's silly. The crowd is great.

    UNC is not great. 10 points in 12 minutes is pretty ridiculous.

    Best way I can summarize this UNC team; I honestly wouldn't be shocked, at all, to see them in the final four. Yet, I would never bet on them, and frequently bet against them. Whatever that means.

    Where is Paige? Has he decided not to score?

    No it doesn't. You are just trying to be funny (or I hope so).



    That was obviously a terrible offensive half, though they got a lot of really good shots and just couldn't make them. 18 points is pitiful.

    That's the third time this guy has said Anya has 75 blocks in his career, pretty sure it's just this season.

    This was just a terrible effort overall on offense. Just bad. Nothing good at all comes from this for the Heels. A really bad loss for so many reasons. Disappointing.

    Yeah. Kind of a microcosm of the season.

    It happens against UVA usually once if they play twice. A disconnect is evident in this group at this point it seems. I think guys like Johnson and possibly Tokoto might already have 1 foot out the door.

    Apparently it is the fewest points a UNC team has ever scored at the Smith center. Good job gang. Congrats.

    No way this NCSU team should be anywhere near the bubble.

    You beat me to it. Where in the world would Tokoto think he was going?

    Finally stopped Paige. Guy has torn us apart single handedly.

    Happy to get the win and hope this springs us into the tournament.

    I can't imagine where anyone on this team thinks they are going. There isn't a star on the whole team, which is ok at times. At times it works great actually. I mean, it all comes down to a few things pretty much. How engaged and with it is Tokoto. When he is present the team is good. Plus, they just can't flipping shoot. At one point when State switched to a zone we passed it out and three different guards had a wide open three. All three faked like they would shoot it and then we blew it somehow. How can you have three guards in the game who won't take a wide open three?? I've never in my life passed up a wide open three and I didn't sniff college basketball.

    Louisville vaults UNC into 4th. Closing in on that double bye.

    I feel like unc is having the decade we had at the start of the 2000's with Tubby.

    When I watched NC St dismantle us a couple weeks ago I left the game in disbelief they were closer to the bubble than the Top 10.

    I don't really understand how the Pack have so many losses. It just makes no sense. Seeing them up close about 10 rows up, they had size, speed, shooting, and for the game against us awesome PG play. I guess Barbour is up and down.

    I don't really know their status in regards to tournament bid or NIT - but if they make the tournament they could win a bunch of games.

    Look back at how many guys have left a year or two early only to be 2nd round picks. DeAndre Liggins ring a bell? More guys are going the route of getting signed as 2nd round picks or UFA.

    It's one thing to go 2nd round in the NBA draft. It's quite another to go 2nd round in the Lithuanian draft.

    NCSU has some bad losses, but this is their 3rd win vs a top-15 team including their 2nd on the road, and have 3 very winnable reg season games left. Lunardi has them as one of the last four in prior to this game, so their shot at the NCAAT is looking even better now.

    Yeah, I think unless they really close poorly they are in. It doesn't really matter since they beat us though. They burned their couches and our jerseys and had their celebrations last night. The season is pretty much over for the fans.

    Big win which we needed. Unless we fall apart we should be in easily. Difference now is we are playing better D than at any point this year and the light bulb has finally turned on for Cat, he's had a tremendous last 5 games.

    He makes a huge difference. You should shoot, had Lacey, and had some toughness inside. If you get consistent play out of Barber you are a good team. Plus, despite the fact that Gott slowed it down last night (which was smart) Barber now seems to be able to play at multiple speeds. State has good guards, which is kind of the opposite of UNC, and good guards can do a lot in the tournament.

    Cat's the kind of guy who could easily spearhead a sweet 16 run, IMO.

    You would of thought they were playing in the NCAA title game after that win the way the fans reacted to the win.
