    My Heels played a great 32mins...But they changed it up and it cost them a BIG WIN! Also, you know the refs won't gonna let K lose on his birthday and all he's done for them over his years! LOL

    Duke stunk it up for most of the game last night, and won a close one against a team they should have beaten badly.

    Kinda reminded me of State against Clemson.

    Kudos to Carolina for playing well for the first 3/4 of the game and making it interesting.

    What a troll. Beat it.

    Probably correct, But word is you`re not too bad at it.

  • Voice of Reason 23 Feb 13, 2013

    If not for Macado and Bullock, Carolina was 11/14 from the FT line

  • JohnnyVoodoo Feb 13, 2013

    Not sure who sux worse....the tarhole basketball team or tarhole fans... guess we could say both do. *lol*

  • jam3 Feb 13, 2013

    Pretty ugly game, but the worst team lost and that's the way it should be!!!

    Was thinking what a great job Roy did with his line-up and defense....Now, lets see who makes the adjustments in Chapel Hill!!

  • Voice of Reason 23 Feb 13, 2013

    yeah, but 6 or 8 of Duke's FTs were just the fouls at the end of the game to try to save it.

  • JohnnyVoodoo Feb 13, 2013

    game over man, game over..... *lol*

  • StunGunn Feb 13, 2013

    Congrats to Duke. You were the better team and made clutch plays.

    Good night, all:)

    I was surprised at Curry, but Plumlee ended up with a double double, I think. But yeah, both were off their games.

    We have UVA on Saturday - even though it's in CH, it will be one tough game. Hope the guys aren't too down after tonight. Congrats again, fred.

    You may be right. In the first and part of the second half, we were at the line more, but towards the end of the game, Duke did get to the line.

    i'll guarantee that they didn't miss as many as unc did :)

    LOL - no. Curry and Mason aren't likely to both have such py games, again, when we get to CH.

  • StunGunn Feb 13, 2013

    So true. To play as well as they did and lose at the line is inexcusable. Still, happy with their effort otherwise.

    Whats up with UNC player's haircuts? Don't they have barbers in Chapel Hole?

    You may be right, fred. Who knows which team will show up and which players will shine. Who thought Thornton would be a stud, and who thought Carolina would be winning at the half. I hope for a different outcome in CH. Gotta give ROy credit - he coached them up for this game. He even called T/O's:)

  • RD n NC Feb 13, 2013

    Roy needs to devote an entire practice to nothing but FT`s, Just isnt any excuse for that

    I believe Duke shot more freethrows than Carolina. I'll have to check the box score.

  • rfred16 Feb 13, 2013

    True, but only of you catch Duke playing like they did tonight. Not saying UNC didn't play well defensively, but Duke has run the score up against great defenses before...Tonight just may have been your best chance. Still, I might favore UNC barely in Chapel Hill, but you may catch a much calmer Duke team, shooting better, and not turning the ball over with silly plays like they did early. Now, if Kelly is back...thats a whole different conversation. But, tonight, congrats on a great effort by UNC.

    Thanks, fog. The Heels played a lot better than I thought they would. COngrats on the win. It was a good game, the better team won.

    Totally agree about the refs! This is the first time I saw Carolina get to the line more than their opponent. They did Duke no favors. Surprised at how off Curry was, and Plumlee struggled until the second half.

    I hope you're wrong about the game in CH, but we'll find out soon enough. COngrats on the win. Great game.

    Thanks, MO. COngrats on the Duke win. They made the plays to win. GOod game.

  • foghat001 Feb 13, 2013

    Great game. Carolina did a good job. Yeah, turnovers, airballs, but if the shooting had just been a little better we'd have had our $$$ handed to us. 2nd game in a row that Duke has not played very well. Gotta do better than that against Miami.

  • daren9 Feb 13, 2013

    I sure hope Wolfpackindahizzy4shizzy is online when State comes to Chapel Hill. I remember reading posts earlier in the week that Carolina was going to lose by 30. Duke is ranked 2 and UNC is not ranked. We still have Duke coming to Chapel Hill.

    Please do tell the Roy story soon. I didn't think the game would be this close either. Proud of their effort!

    Thanks mo.

  • rfred16 Feb 13, 2013

    Some points in this one.....can't say the refs favor Duke...not saying it was poorly officiated, but certainly no favors Duke's way....Who would have picked Thorton to be the main 3 point shooter for Duke??? Wow....Curry was off with most of his shots, much of that due to defense. Mason, although a double-double, seemed out of it, and McAdoo got by him often...Cook seemed very nervous the first half, and had many stupid turnovers....Rasheed really carried the team most of the night.....This may have been UNCs best chance to beat Duke, and I can see Duke playing much more loose in Chapel Hill...

    I have a pretty good story about Roy too from when I bumped into him on an airplane one time, but I will save it for another day. Good game by your Heels tonight. I did not think it would be that close and they probably cost a lot of people a lot of money.

  • ncstateforever Feb 13, 2013

    Great game tonight. I'm proud of the Heels and their effort.

    Congratulations Carolina on a hard fought game. Now come with that intensity against everyone else and you'll be ok.

  • RD n NC Feb 13, 2013

    No doubt, we take this game in Chapel Hill

    I totally agree that the ACC is the BEST BB conference. Thanks for your sportsmanship. Congrats to Duke. They made the plays when they had to to win the game.

  • VT1994Hokie Feb 13, 2013

    UNC did work hard and gave evergy tonight. FT's killed them.

  • RD n NC Feb 13, 2013

    LOL, they wanted to rush the court !!!!!

  • StunGunn Feb 13, 2013

    Oh, who cares about the last basket? Great work by Hairston, but it doesn't decide the change the outcome of the game.

  • VT1994Hokie Feb 13, 2013

    Duke woke up in the 2nd half like the Duke of old.

    I'll bet K would agree with you.

  • FatherofFour Feb 13, 2013

    As a State fan, I have to offer my congratulations to both teams tonight. It was an enjoyable game to watch as a true college basketball fan. Congratulations to Duke for winning the game. Congratulations to UNC for making it a game and giving Coach K a little stress on his birthday. You definitely made it closer than most (including me) would have thought. No matter the year, or the situation, I still believe that ACC basketball is the most entertaining in the country.

  • ncstateforever Feb 13, 2013

    Why is K pulling out the clipboard with 5 sec. left?
