    Is WRAL a little bias? I was at the game and UNC held the lead the entire game. This title would make it appear that UNC won the game by free throws thrown at the end of the game. Report the truth, not the bent truth.

    Seems like the ABC crowd cant find any good news lately. First the Martin Report and now... View More

    Good win for the Heels. As far as the Martin report, I really don't think any ABCer thought the outcome would be any different from the start. Eventhough UNC called it an independant report, when the one being investigates picks the investigator, its hardly an independant investigation and you know from the start that the damage is going to be limited, thats why they picked who they picked. The more interesting report will be the one from the SBI. Don't get me wrong I'm not expecting much difference than what this report showed. It is an investigation called for by a UNC grad, by an agency headed by a UNC grad, UNC knows exactly what they are doing. The only difference and the thing that might backfire on them is that this is a criminal investigation and when all the blame is put on the professor and his department, there will probably be several members of state government calling for criminal charges against him. This is where it will get interesting, will the professor or his assistant except all the blame and take a chance on going to prison or will the make a deal and singing like a bird. I really think the professor is too intelligent to take a chance on going to prison. having his career tarnished for life, and being seperated from his family. Plus he doesn't seem like the kind of person that would want to spend one minute in prison. I think UNC may have miscalculated the human factor in this, but it is a very smart plan. Only time will tell.

    on the contrary. Your post makes you look like the crybaby. Or at the least a feminine wash product. But then what do you expect from a fudge fan.

    Woohoo! A win FINALLY over a top 25 team. Way to go Holes!

    — Posted by fireman1234

    Is that the best you can do? Fear is beginning to creep in. Your hoped-for 2010 repeat isn't happening and, what is worse for you, the team won a big game without a starter.

  • heelsforever Dec 29, 4:54 p.m.

    Roy, please PLEASE start PJ and Brice the rest of the season. Continue with JMM, Reggie, and Dex as starters and let LMAC, Tokoto, Paige, Hubert, and James be your reserves. PLEASE use the most firepower you have, PLEASE!

    great win for my heels i seen alot today that made me feel so much better and got all these bad tastes out of my mouth way to go heels we just gotta practice our free throw shooting can get alot better but nonetheless great win heels now lets get ready for conference play!

  • RD n NC Dec 29, 4:26 p.m.

    Great win by Carolina, playing without Bullock, not folding when UNLV made a run and took the lead, playing most of the last 5 mins without JMM. I`d like to see us hit "2" Ft`s down the stretch once in awhile. Impressive win.

    Go Heels !!

    If today's game is any indication of what this team can do, there are blue skies - as in Carolina Blue Skies - ahead. I saw so much improvement in the team today - much better D, better rebounding, points in the paint, fighting for loose ballz. All around great effort.

  • mxteam44 Dec 29, 4:20 p.m.

    Best defense I've seen the Heels play all season. That was great to see! This team doesn't have the scorers they're used to having, so defense is going to have to be a main focus all season.
    Good win for the boys!!!!! As long as they can improve as the season moves along, they'll be fine.
    Go Heels!

    Good win over a Top 20 team ... without our best all-around player and the ACC's best 3-point shooter. Something to build on, but we've still got a long way to go.

    It's a team game and the team won.

  • Tar Heels Victory-Show No Mercer Dec 29, 4:15 p.m.

    Great win for the Heels. Everyone stepped up to make up for Bullock's absence. Hopefully, they can continue to play with confidence the rest of the year!

    GO HEELS!!!

  • MoDuke v2 is gone Dec 29, 4:14 p.m.

    Good win for the heels today. It helps make the ACC look better.

    The official made a bad call to give UNLV the free throws with 30 seconds left.

  • BattlingBishop 5 Dec 29, 2:59 p.m.

    Have been watching this one, looks like the real Tar Heels showed up today. UNLV closed the gap prior to the half but the Heels have outplayed 'em overall.
    More rebounds, points in the paint, points off the bench, forced 11 UNLV TOs. They look like they're ready to play today...so far.

  • StunGunn Dec 29, 2:54 p.m.

    Hate that UNLV hit that 3 to end the half, but oh well.

  • StunGunn Dec 29, 2:29 p.m.

  • StunGunn Dec 29, 2:27 p.m.

    I'm so impressed with the intensity and defensive effort Carolina is displaying. Bullock may be on the bench, but the guys are playing very well without him so far. I haven't seen them play such good D all season. Go Heels! Revenge will be sweet!

  • fearthewhiteguy Dec 29, 2:14 p.m.

  • kornfan2448 Dec 29, 1:28 p.m.

    Hairston needs to have a great game and they need to play TEAM defense for 40 minutes.

    GO HEELS!!
