According to folks in the UNC Athletics Department, the series between the two winningest basketball programs of all time, Kentucky and North Carolina will continue through the year 2010. It had looked for some time that this season’s edition of the rivalry might be the last for the near future, but the two teams got together and extended it for two more years. As you surely know, the Cats won the first four games of this reincarnation of the battle and the Heels have one the last three. This year the Heels can pull even, although they do have to do it in Rupp Arena (for a game that will be WILD as it will be the first big home game of the Billy Clyde era).
And oh yeah, that picture is former Heel legend Neil Fingleton, whose mere face always makes me smile.
