Mother, Can You Spare A Dime? Williams’ Tar Heels In An Epic Collapse

Posted in Basketball at 8:06 pm by

Georgetown 96, North Carolina 84 (O.T.)

Not to diminish the heart-tugging saga of Carolina’s Roy W. using childhood poverty to inspire rampant tooth decay as an adult, but the only thing colder than those icy bottles of Coke in his office was the Tar Heels’ shooting touch. N.C. hit just one of their last 23 shots from the field and missed their 12 shots in O.T., while managing to blowing a ten point lead with 6 minutes to go.

I have no idea how Patrick Ewing Sr. and John Thompson chose to celebrate with their sons after the game, but if memory serves me well, Scores stays open until 4 AM.

Though a no.2 seed advancing to the Final Four cannot be considered a major upset by any stretch, some credit is due this evening to Dwil, who insisted some time ago these Hoyas were for real.
