But before the handicapping, complaining and wagering commence, let's pause to acknowledge and, if you're so inclined, applaud what the University of Virginia has accomplished. The competition was fierce, the crowd electric, the champion richly deserving.
Ryan Odom, who is in his second season leading the Retrievers, grew up in Charlottesville when his father, Dave Odom, was an assistant coach at UVa from 1982-89.
1 in the country, outscored the Tar Heels in both halves to win both the ACC Tournament and regular-season titles. This came after they lost two-straight to end the ACC regular season.
Twelve times this season, the Cavaliers encountered a conference rival away from John Paul Jones Arena. However, with 400 meters to go, Villanova took the lead and went on to win in 11:13.65. North Carolina snapped the drought with a 3-pointer by Luke Maye, who scored 20, but Jerome nailed a 3 out of a timeout to restore the nine-point lead.UNC, playing in its record 35th ACC championship game, never got closer than five as Virginia closed it out from the free throw line.

Jamal Johnson led Memphis with 17 points but didn't score in the second half, when the Tigers squandered a 13-point lead. Former L.C. Bird standout Kenny Williams had 12 for the Tar Heels. "I think we showed some interior scoring".
"But I really like what he does". "Any little trip he does, if he puts a finger on somebody, you know they're going to react. Marshall won. They took it out of anybody's hands", WKU coach Rick Stansbury said. Guy is able to guard multiple positions, play man or zone defense, and he is a supreme ball handler, which helps him create his own shot. I believe it was at Vermont... But more often than not, North Carolina is a two-headed attack hoping one of the other options steps up.
In short, he knows exceptional coaching when he sees it. "I'm serious. ... You realize they weren't even picked in the (preseason) top 25?"
"Any foul in the game is not. you don't want any foul", Coach K said. It became clear before conference play, and then dreadfully so during most of February and March, that the Orange did not possess enough offensive talent to compete against the best teams in the nation's best conference.
