Harrison Barnes Leaves Bitter Taste in the Mouth of UNC Fans

These have all been words used to describe Harrison Barnes in the wake of a second straight season in which the North Carolina Tar Heels have been ousted in the Elite Eight.

Tournament Reset #1

If ever there was a year to regroup after the first weekend, this is it. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do. We’re going to forget the first fifty games that have already happened, and re-examine the field as it stands, with the 16 teams left standing.

Saturday:

Temple vs Wyoming (Gildan New Mexico Bowl)
