A Baby Story

Freshmen players on Kentucky: Terrence Jones, Brandon Knight, Doron Lamb
Freshmen players on North Carolina: Harrison Barnes, Reggie Bullock

North Carolina 75 - Kentucky 73

Well. That was more exciting than what we originally thought. This wasn't really a situation of which team played the best. It was more than a situation of which team screwed up the least. With two awfully young teams you had your missed shots galore, passes to Casper and boneheaded fouls (if Kentucky didn't foul Tyler Zeller in those final 30 seconds the result would have been different). Ultimately the Tar Heels screwed up the least. Congrats. And don't call it an upset.

What made that game even better was that the great Gus Johnson was calling it.
