What Carolina has done this season is quite amazing. The Tar Heels lost their top seven players off a national championship team. The only returning players of note were three role guys in David Noel, Byron Sanders and Quentin Thomas. To be fair, the Tar Heels did have a solid freshmen class, led by forward Tyler Hansbrough. But still, do you really think anyone would have guessed that in the regular-season finale at Duke the four UNC freshmen (Hansbrough, Marcus Ginyard, Danny Green and Bobby Frasor) would outscore the four Duke seniors (Redick, Williams, Sean Dockery and Lee Melchionni) 55-51?
Just had to throw that out there. 83-76...in Cameron...Redick and Sheldon's senior night. Four Tar Heel freshman...best choice for NCAA Coach of the Year. The boys never cease to amaze me this year.
