Apparently, last night was a bad night to be a Cavalier. We’ve already mentioned LeBron’s struggles, but he wasn’t the only playing for the mascot having the horrible night. The Virginia Cavaliers got caught in the UNC buzzsaw last night as the Tar Heels try and erase any bad tastes leftover from their 0-2 start in the ACC. The highlight of the game–besides Tyler Hansbrough passing Christian Laettner on the all-time ACC scoring list–was a putback slam by Danny Green.
Are the Heels getting ready to roll again, now that they’ve got that first ACC win out of the way? There’s almost a month until they travel to Cameron Indoor for the first of their yearly, bi-annual game of the century of the year of the season against Duke (February 11). They also have Clemson at home and two away games at NC State and Florida State.
All three of these contests present potential pitfalls for the Heels.
