Tar Heel Bred Tar Heel Dead

So just how out of control was the Smith Center on Saturday night? Let’s just say Libya’s got nothing on Chapel Hill. It was utter chaos from start to finish, with screaming, stomping, cheering and wild jumping up and down. Here’s a courtside view of the The Dunk. It was so big and confident, it only needs to go by one name, like Cher or Oprah.

North Carolina is up to #6 in the just-released AP poll. Carolina is just one spot behind Duke, who remains at #5. But if there was any justice in the world, the teams would have swapped places.

In the Coaches Poll, UNC is at #7.

Can you feel that excitement, that crackle in the air? It’s Larry Drew’s birthday, and he’s celebrating tonight as so many of us do: by throwing himself a party with Jamie Foxx. Don’t ask us how Larry Drew knows Jamie Foxx, or why Jamie wants to hang out with a college student. Maybe he’s hoping to get a try-out with the Atlanta Hawks. Anyway, here’s LD’s tweet announcing the party.

Monday, March 7th, don’t miss my 21st bday live at the Conga Room with Jamie Foxx and Foxxhole Radio. Food n drinks, first 100 get in free

You best get there early though. Word is, Larry’s mom is making him leave two hours before the party ends.

And Dook goes down. Hard. We’ve got all the reasons why this win was more fun than anything Charlie Sheen did on Saturday night. Also, on this all-Dook spectacular episode, Andy and Reed debunk the top 5 myths that this game laid bare about the Blue Devils.

It would be easy to say that the stat of the game was the fact that Kendall Marshall had more assists all by himself than the entire dook team. But look deeper. Today’s stat is actually one number that shows up in two places… (more…)

For the first time in a long while, no one who plays significant minutes will be graduating after the season. (Justin Knox is officially a grad student.) Not that we don’t love Blue Steel, but tomorrow’s ceremony honoring D.J. Johnston, Van Hatchell and Daniel Bolick will probably feel less consequential than Senior Nights of the past.

Last year, the team bid farewell to 12th-year senior Marcus Ginyard and Deon Thompson. (As well as Ed Davis and the Wear twins, although no one knew it at the time.)

The year before, Danny Green, Tyler Hansbrough and Mike Copeland graduated.

In 2008, Quentin Thomas moved on to a lucrative career in rap.

You’d have to go all the way back to 2004 to find a Senior Night in which no major players took part. That year, Phillip McLamb, Damien Price and Jonathan Miller were the only ones graduating. Also, if you’re interested, McLamb invented this crazy thing.

The Heels received a verbal commitment from the class of 2012 shortly after 11pm Thursday. JP Tokoto is a 6’6″ wing player from Wisconsin. Most services have him ranked in the top 40 in the country. He is extremely athletic and finishes strong around the rim. Translation: Mugjanker. Kendall will just need to toss the ball anywhere near the basket for JP to posterize some unsuspecting dookie. Here are some highlights:

Last night, Kevin Durant tried to drive on Tyler and lost. The Thunder forward twisted his ankle and is doubtful for Friday’s game, although the injury does not appear to be serious, luckily.
By the way, Tyler had 13 points and 7 rebounds. Another solid effort.
