IN A NIGHT WITH SEVERAL STORIES, CAROLINA'S DEFENSE WAS NOT ENOUGH TO EARN AN ACC WIN.
CHARLOTTESVILLE—In a night of many stories, Hubert Davis now
diagnosed perhaps the least apparent as he sat outside the Tar Heel locker room
He didn't mention the absence of Pete Nance,
who didn't play, or the loss of Armando Bacot just 1:18 into the game. Bacot suffered an ankle injury
did not return. Even without the pair, Carolina had a
seven-point second half lead that disappeared.
He didn't talk about Carolina's rotation
problems, with 13 errors leading to 19 Virginia points.
He wasn't really referring to the records, as Carolina hasn't
hosted in Charlottesville since 2012, when Davis was still an ESPN analyst
Now, it's no better that Seth Trimble hasn't played a sport
like Tar Heel yet; neither was his brother, J.P. Tokoto
The ACC had 12 teams and one of
them became Maryland. Bacot became a fundamental school.
Davis was not interested in the
afterlife. Alternatively, I have identified that what is important to the game is Carolina's defense, or lack thereof.
