Second straight home opponent they've held to exactly 50 points!  Heels were just 5-19 from 3, which is a huge contrast from the Tigers' last 4 losses. What a second half by Hunter Tyson, whose just been back from injury for a couple weeks! He scored 16 points, all in the 2nd half, including the Tigers' only two 3's of the half. He also made a couple great plays at the defensive end when the game was close and had a couple big dunks at the end! I thought he was the difference in the game when the Heels got to within 4 points with under 10 mins left. Trapp also had a great game with 14 points and 9 rebounds. I've always said that Trapp is an outstanding rebounder for a guard and doesn't get enough credit for that part of his game. Rebounding is always huge when you play UNC because that is how they beat you.

The Tigers are now 11-5 overall and 5-5 in the ACC. UNC was one of the hottest teams in the ACC coming in, and the Tigers have beaten them 3 times in the last 4 meetings! The Tigers have back-to-back home games for the first time in a long time with Cuse coming to town on Saturday. If the Tigers win at least half of their remaining games, I'm pretty sure they'll make the NCAA Tourney. Hopefully they'll put together another win streak like we saw before the COVID layoff!

I'll have post-game interviews and highlights in a bit!
