North Carolina lost to Butler


No. 5 North Carolina just lost to unranked Butler in the Battle 4 Atlantis quarterfinals this afternoon. Player of the Year candidate Marcus Paige scored 18 points for the Heels, but he looked erratic at times and went 5-for-17 from the field, including 3-for-10 from deep. Paige’s second bucket in the game didn’t come until there were two minutes left; if that happens again on December 13, UNC won’t pose much of a threat to the Wildcats in Rupp Arena.

UCLA, another upcoming opponent on UK’s non-conference slate, is up next in Atlantis on ESPN2. Today’s a good day for scouting. (And missing the Bahamas.)

    I watched the last 10 minutes of this game. If that is truely what UNC looks like (I haven’t seen any of their other games), UK will destroy them. UNC looked lost against Butler’s defense; imagine the trouble they’ll have against UK’s defense. If UNC plays like that, we’ll do to them what we did to Kansas.

    They were tired from all the real classes they had to start taking.
