This time of the year, it’s getting colder, days are getting shorter and there’s fewer miles for me on the bike. But yet I still love this time of year for one big thing – college basketball.
Granted, I love when football season kicks off a few months earlier, but nothing beats college basketball season for a Tar Heel fan (and alum). Carolina basketball holds a special place in my heart and a priority in our house. He’ll, our wedding was even scheduled so it wasn’t to intersect with the ACC, nor NCAA tournaments.
I’m typing this during halftime of the Carolina / Kentucky game, and the game has been all UNC, even with Hanbrough and Ginyard on the bench with injuries.
Carolina had a wonderful season last year, though they ended on a sour note in the NCAA tournament, turning in a piss-poor performance against a great Kansas team.
Regardless, if this game tonight against Kentucky is any indication of what the season holds for Carolina,we can look forward to smothering defense and an up-tempo offense, continuing even as the starters get a rest on the bench.
Man, I love this time of the year. Go Heels!
