They'll play No. 18 West Virginia or Baylor on Friday night for a spot in the title game. "I never listened to Woody when it was on TV because I couldn't get the sound to jive, but growing up, they weren't on TV and that's what I remember". Carolina went 10-11 from the line, while Tyus Battle made the only two free throws that Syracuse attempted.
While Williams said he has attempted to recruit numerous prolific one-and-done players that end up signing with Duke, he also acknowledged he wouldn't choose to rely so heavily on the one-and-done model that Duke and Kentucky have had so much success with. "The first group in there missed shots and we were tight and missing everything, missing layups". "It was freakish. I guess we had the game-winning jump ball".
Woods' three-point play was followed by a Manley dunk, and the momentum carried over to the starters once they returned. The committee, and the country, could have some déjà vu around 9:30 p.m. on Friday.
But it was anything but easy. A three-point play by reserve guard Seventh Woods - who missed 17 games during the regular season due to injury and had not scored since the Tar Heels' win over MI on November 29 - put UNC on the board ... It was the first time Duval reached double-digits in assists against an ACC opponent this season.
"Coach said yesterday in practice we're such an unselfish team he doesn't really have to worry about us moving the ball", Pinson said. "We were in the same situation last week".
"I'm just really proud of the guys that came off the bench. I'm glad we won". I mean, I have joy in doing that. "They got us playing the way we needed to play".
"Getting me the ball", the Tar Heels senior forward and resident comedian said.
Theo Pinson is the most consistent piece of the puzzle for UNC after a career-high 25 points (19 in the second half) with 11 rebounds gave him a second straight ACC tourney double-double and saved his team from elimination.
In its 10-4 loss to North Dakota State, however, Duke surrendered 14 hits, with Wiercioch allowing six runs.
"You know, a year ago we lost this game that's going to be played (tonight)". "He created so many lasting memories for Carolina fans during this time of year". Everybody knows that. And I'm gonna be ready. "That's what he did tonight".
Suiting up in front of the Cameron Crazies for the final time, the senior worked his way through some shooting struggles and finished with 13 points (5-of-14 from the field), five assists, five rebounds and five steals.
Their stories, like those of many other true fans, about the voice of the Tar Heels are strikingly similar.
North Carolina: The Tar Heels lost to Miami on a 40-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer in Chapel Hill on February 27.
It was also a bit of revenge of sorts for both Pinson and Berry, who had their Senior Night spoiled last Tuesday when Miami's Ja'Quan Newton sank a miracle heave at the buzzer. "But it was good to get those points". "Texas Tech played a great game but there's a lot of things, when we look at the tape, if we could have done this a little harder or a little better we could have won".
