Another UM heartbreaker…

Another heartbreaking loss for UM…74-71 to North Carolina. Tied 71-71 with seven seconds to go, Barnes hits a 3 for the Tar Heels, the Canes go home depressed again. Past three games they have lost by a total of 7 points.

What do you think is the problem? Bad luck? Poor play in final minutes? Players not quite good enough? Share your thoughts. Here’s your soapbox…



  1. Reliance on the three.

    It worked for much of the game and helped us get out to a 14 point lead in the first half, but it seemed like we began ‘settling’ for 20 foot shots instead of working any sort of post game.

    Conversely, when we did get it inside, Reggie Johnson missed several layups from beneath the basket without looking for outlets, and our other big threat Julian Gamble scored not a single point.

  2. Eric,
    Now that you’re officially a sports writer, you must ditch the “us” “we” and “our”…that is, unless you are, in fact, a member of the UM basketball team. 😉
    Have a nice day.
