Quote Of The Day

“I mean, I’m still trying to figure it out. I don’t know. You know, they sagged the big man off and they were kind of playing a zone. That’s why we’re sitting here right now – we never could figure it out.” 
(Ethan Hyman/Raleigh News & Observer)
North Carolina junior John Henson, who finished with 10 points and four rebounds, on Kansas’ second half triangle and two defense that stymied the Tar Heels.

For 36 minutes, the two teams played a tense, back-and-forth game that seemed destined to be decided in the final seconds. But Kansas changed its defense, confused North Carolina and closed the game on a decisive 12-0 run that sucked all the drama out of a Tar Heel attempt to make it to New Orleans without Kendall Marshall.

In the final 8½ minutes, Carolina didn’t make a single field goal off its set offense. There was a putback by Tyler Zeller and a free throw by Harrison Barnes, but nothing from a standard offensive possession. 

The Heels were shut out for the final 3:57.

Checkmate.
