North Carolina has lost two of its past four to fall to 24-9 on the season.
Then, defending national champion North Carolina traveled almost 500 miles to meet its neighbor, snatched the championship of Tobacco Road and shouted how best to prevent its biggest rival from cutting down the nets at the Final Four.
It's always interesting to get the views of the officiating in any Duke-UNC game. "I think, my memory is not as good as it used to be, but I think we kept playing".
North Carolina won the last game of a quadruple-header at Barclays, but it was still a sad day for Tar Heels Nation.
"That's not the first time I've been in a situation where I had to hold the ball, but it's the first time I lost it like that", Pinson said. "I never used it past year until we got to (the Final Four in) Phoenix". "That was a big-time game tonight". "I mean, everybody and their mama going to be watching the game tomorrow, everybody knows that".
"You guys know who we are" added fellow guard Devon Hall. My teammates are going to be ready. "You just gotta be patient and trust in your defense, just stay locked in the whole 30". "Like, you just nearly blew the game for your team, so you have to make them". The Blue Devils won the most recent matchup 74-64. Carolina is 8-2 over its last 10 contests.
The battle in the paint: Virginia outscored Louisville (42-16) and Clemson (26-14) in the points in the paint category in their first two ACC Tournament games. The next 5:56.6 passed uneventfully, but with Miami leading 31-29, Cameron Johnson was fouled by Lonnie Walker IV on a three-quarters court heave with 0.4 seconds left in the half.

Valve's Gabe Newell Says They're Back To Making Games
As for why Valve moved away from games , Newell frankly said he was concerned about PCs becoming more of a closed system. Valve used to be one of gaming's most acclaimed developers, shipping series like Half-Life and Portal on PlayStation.
"Bagley, well, he was just the first pick in the (NBA) Draft", Brey said after the game.
Over the last three nights, UNC has not allowed a single one of its opponents to shoot better than what Duke did on Friday-a far cry from the team that has struggled on that side of the ball for most of the season. "We look for each other and we're very unselfish". UVA last won the ACC Tournament in 2014 while Clemson has never won it.
"I thought they were doing okay defensively and I just wanted to shake them a little bit and put those five guys in".
Duke's 100 wins and.694 winning percentage are the best of any league team. The Tar Heels' spasms of brainlessness in this tournament have provoked him to sub out the entire starting five, and to try to rip his suit coat in half.
The Tar Heels honored Durham, who called North Carolina games for 40 years, by wearing white warm-up shirts that had "Woody" written in black letters across the backs.
But it's the defense that has vaulted the Blue Devils from good to scary over the last month.
Coming into Friday night's series rubber match between the two arch-rivals, Duke ranked fifth in the country with a team scoring average of over 85 points per game. When he exited the game for four minutes due to the injury, Alex O'Connell did not perform any better in his place, throwing a low-post entry pass right into the hands of Tar Heel guard Theo Pinson, who was standing directly in front of Marvin Bagley III.
