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.
