UNC: Started From The Bottom Now They're Here

Started from the bottom, now they’re here… As in unranked North Carolina started 1-4 in the ACC. And, well, now they’re here... to claim bragging rights in the Battle of the Blues, respectively the best rivalry in college hoops, hands down.

Since all college hoops enthusiasts already know I’m talking about the exciting, intriguing matchup between North Carolina and Duke, I will not delve into the competitive history of these two schools. Because unless you live under a rock, you’re cognizant of the deep-seated conflict these two schools’ fan bases have for one another.

The hate runs as deep as the competitiveness on the court which is why last night’s game did not disappoint. It was everything a college hoops fan could hope for, and more. In fact, to be honest, it was the second best game of the 2013-2014 season—the first being the Duke-vs.-Syracuse matchup on Feb. 1, that was so fantastic it had to be decided in overtime in which Syracuse won, 91-89.

Back to last night’s game, it was the monster of epic matchups in college hoops. And for that reason, I was more than okay with Tar Heel fans storming the court to celebrate at the end of the game. Not only was the game epic, it was historical. For the first time since 1990, an unranked North Carolina team beat a Top-5 Duke team. If that isn’t reason to marvel in glory, I don’t know what is. Add in the fact that Duke was a favorite to win in Chapel Hill and of course the Tar Heels have a reason to be prideful. Lastly, I highly doubt any one college hoops fan would have expected North Carolina to rally back in the cut-throat fashion they did after losing to Belmont and Texas earlier in the season. But then, that’s what makes North Carolina’s win all the more impressive; no one expected them to be this good after a 1-4 start in the ACC.

But why is that when considering this is the same North Carolina team that knocked off then-Number 1 Michigan State, a then-Number 3 Louisville, and a then-Number 11 Kentucky?
Ponder that one… While you’re at it, please reacquaint yourselves with the following quote: “Past performance does not equate to future performance.”

Love them or hate them, North Carolina is an elite basketball program. Last night solidified that in stone.
