Sunday, March 20th, was a good one for Tar Heel fans. But it didn’t start that way. With 3:00 minutes left in the game, UNC was down by 5 to an Arkansas team that had climbed back from an early 17 point Tar Heel lead. Thankfully, due to solid free throw shooting, a Kennedy Meeks tip-in, and a couple dunks, Carolina made it out with a 72-65 win.

But that wasn’t the best news to come

Directly after the Tar Heel-Razorback game, Duke and South Carolina faced off in a 2 seed vs 7 seed battle. Duke held a decent lead throughout the game, but the Gamecocks put up a dominant fight and pulled off a huge 88-81 win.

Twitter Reactions to the Duke loss

Here’s what a fan thought about the game…

A UNC basketball signee…

And even a former UNC big man

Needless to say, Carolina fans can rest easy tonight knowing that their boys will continue to dance and Duke will not.

As Craig Morgan once sang, “That’s what I love about Sundays.”

I am nothing but a southern boy, from the prototype of small town USA; raised on sweet tea, good manners, and basketball. I modeled my game as a averagely athletic, Tyler Hansbrough with a jumpshot and it earned me a few emails from D-3 schools, so I write now. I attend the University of North Carolina and treat our teams like royalty. Go Heels, Go America, baby!
