Tar Heels Outworked in Collapse

There are plenty of statistics to highlight in attempting to explain No. 13 North Carolina’s collapse against No. 10 Louisville on Saturday, although there are none available to fully encompass what actually occurred. The Tar Heels combined a solid defensive effort with a control of the backboards, and even quality bench production to build a demoralizing 18-point lead with 17:51 to play. (Inside Carolina)

No. 10 Louisville pulls away from No. 13 UNC in OT 78-68

Louisville has shot makers. They missed a bunch in the first half Saturday against North Carolina. But shooters shoot, and those Louisville guards attacked hard in the second half here in the KFC Yum! Center, filling holes created by their first-half misfires, and they stole the game in overtime. Louisville, ranked No. 10 in The Associated Press Top 25, beat No. 13 UNC 78-68. (Durham Herald-Sun)

For Roy Williams, Coach K is a respected rival

For the record, North Carolina coach Roy Williams has won a whole bunch of basketball games. But for the record, well, that belongs to the guy who coaches the guys his team’s fans love to hate. A thousand wins for Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. That’s a lot.“It’s just an amazing accomplishment,” Williams said. “He’s done it for 40 years and done it at a high, high level.” (Durham Herald-Sun)

Recap & Analysis: Louisville 78 UNC 68 (OT)

This is certainly a tough loss but not wholly unexpected. Winning a game during which a team holds an 18 point lead is ideal but Louisville should be credited for fighting back. After all this was a game between two very good and evenly matched teams. It was the reversal of the game in Chapel Hill and as much as it would have been nice for the Heels to steal one on the road, it is not an unexpected loss. (Tar Heel Blog)

Louisville rallies from 18 down to beat UNC 78-68 in OT

Terry Rozier scored No. 10 Louisville's first six points in overtime and the Cardinals erased an 18-point second-half deficit to beat No. 13 North Carolina 78-68 on Saturday. Marcus Paige scored 15 points for UNC, one of four Tar Heels in double figures. Carolina led 43-25 with 17:51 remaining but Louisville clawed back to single digits by forcing eight turnovers in a six-minute stretch. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Louisville

It's been a while since a Carolina team has played so incredibly well for the first 22 minutes of the game and then watched absolutely everything fall apart after that. After building a 43-25 lead early in the second half, the Tar Heels couldn't score, couldn't rebound, and couldn't stop Louisville from scoring. The signature play of the Tar Heel rebounding issues came in overtime. (GoHeels.com)

North Carolina-Louisville Preview

Louisville may boast the ACC's best backcourt duo in Terry Rozier and Chris Jones. The pressure will be on the 10th-ranked Cardinals' front line Saturday, however, when they try to avenge a loss from three weeks ago against No. 13 North Carolina. Louisville likely needs a better game from Montrezl Harrell, who had nine points on 4-of-10 shooting and five rebounds, 3.9 fewer than his season average. (Yahoo! Sports)

No. 13 UNC looks for season sweep of No. 10 Louisville

North Carolina holds a 10-3 advantage in the all-time series with Louisville and is seeking the regular-season sweep after earning a hard-fought 72-71 decision over Louisville in Chapel Hill on Jan. 10. The Cardinals will attempt to slow down the Tar Heels with their stingy defensive play. It has been a staple with Louisville this season, as the team holds opponents to a mere 58.5 ppg.

Preview & Prediction: #13 UNC at #10 Louisville

After a stretch of games where UNC "had to win" because a loss would have been devastating given the level of competition, the next two games constitute opportunities to bolster the NCAA resume The games also significantly improve UNC's position to finish in the ACC's top four and avoid an extra game in the league tournament. Prediction: UNC 78, Louisville 72 (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC, Brice Johnson surging at same time

The 13th-ranked Tar Heels (17-4, 7-1 ACC) will take on 10th-ranked Louisville (17-3, 5-2) on Saturday afternoon at the KFC Yum! Center, and Johnson's improvement has coincided with a six-game winning streak for UNC. During that stretch, Johnson has averaged 14.5 points and 10.0 rebounds while shooting 66.0 percent from the field. He's also recorded four of his five double-doubles. (Fayetteville Observer)
