Lucas: The Lesson PlanIt’s fine to be disturbed by the loss. But we won’t really know how meaningful this defeat was until February or March. You were frustrated watching the game because you already knew you can’t take those kinds of shots. You can’t commit lane violations that give them a free point. You can’t continually let them drive to the rim. And you just can't play this way on the road. (GoHeels.com)
The Value Of A LossNeedless to say, this performance bore no connection to what the Tar Heels did in the first seven games of the season. But, this is November, and the sneaking suspicion is North Carolina will learn from this and be a much better, more fortified bunch as a result of this performance. At least the Heels said the right things afterward, and that’s a start. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
