You didn't miss it did you?
You didn't turn the game off with 2 minutes left, thinking that the Tar Heels "had em", did you?
Because if you did you missed the greatest 10 point come back in the history of the Devils-Heels match up.
A come back capped off with a 3 point buzzer beater from Duke freshman Austin Rivers to win by one.
ESPN has more details here.
The Charlotte Observer used a report from the Raleigh News and Observer as their led story in this morning's paper.
When Scott Fowler posted a good recap on his blog, I couldn't help posting the following:
Scott please tell me you sat courtside during the game. Though, I suspect you didn't.
I also suspect that the reason the Raleigh News and Observer's Andrew Carter story leads and his folo comments are boxed along with your post, is that The Charlotte Observer wouldn't give anyone the "gas money" to make the trip up Tobacco Road last night.
I miss the days when John Kilgo would drive to Chapel Hill along the back roads. Up 49 to Asheboro, Siler City to Pittsboro and then 501 up to Chapel Hill. Over the years I'd guess he made that same trip a thousand times. Often just to head back to Charlotte shortly after the game ended. He'd often have his story filed in time to make the morning paper, only to do it all again a few days later.
I miss those days when Charlotte has sports reporters who covered not just the big games but all the games in person.
Sure Scott Fowler and I can watch the game on our 56 inch plasma televisions. But.....
