They are like five fingers, that make a fist! And the fist is better than just the plain hand!

Yes, but it's no good if they keep punching themselves with it.

Coach

Illinois back in it, 9-7 with 15:40 to go, UNC lead.

Saulbadguy
04-04-2005, 08:30 PM
And just like that, 9-9.

Whoa!! The Illini are manhandling UNC right now. They need to control the boards to win it.

Illini take the lead, 12-9.

Looks like this game has the making to be down to the wire/last shot game.

Powell is 6'6" and he is owning UNC inside... Roy's big boys need to sack up and get tough on the boards. It doesn't look like their guards can hang with Head-Brown-Williams so far, they need to beat them down inside.

Hey, Bruce. The Orange Bowl committee called, they want their blazer back.

Did anyone else watch player introductions? With the exception of a couple players, those were some scared kids.

Wow, where the hell did the refs go? Powell got raped about 6 times, that was horrible...

Doesn't really look like the Tarheels really need the refs' help, though. They are abusing the Illini right now.

Carolina up by 13 at half. Will Roy hang on and win the Big 1 finally?

BTW How do you Jayhawk fans feel about this?

Illinois needs to play better. They're not going to get any help from the refs. UNC is getting that. They need to make better decisions with the basketball. They have a 3 on 1 sure score. Instead of slamming it home, Head backs it out to the 3 pt arc and clanks a three. Stupid.

I double sux! Especially since I wanted Illinois to win it all after the Jayhawks lost!

I speak only for myself, but I want to feel good for Roy if he wins. On the other hand, I feel kinda like a jilted lover, and if the best revenge is living well....

They just weren't calling a lot of contact inside there at the end of the half, that definitely favors UNC I think. Allows May to bang around, and forces Illinois to have to hit their threes.

This is a herculean effort from Illinois, they haven't really gotten a break all night... to come back from 15 down against this team. Tough.

That's Illinois basketball at it's finest. Tied game 70 all, with 2:38 to go in the 2nd half.

Roy called a timely time-out?? Hell, he may finally win the big one.

04-04-2005, 10:17 PM
But UNC is going away from May, which may cost them.

If UNC makes both FT's, yes.

Big congrats to Roy, one of the best of his era or any era. Hopefully he'll get the credit he's due after he's taken so much dissing around here.

Frazod
04-04-2005, 10:24 PM
Done.

04-04-2005, 10:26 PM
It's over. Roy finally gets him a ring.

Delano

Luther Head could not have asked for a better look there.

Hmm.. at least the game was kind of interesting. UNC should have really pulled away in the second half, they let a double-digit lead shrink to nothing two times.

As we all already knew deep in our hearts, releasing Roy from the prison we call Kansas was all the lift he needed to get a National Championship.

If droopy dog had one fewer NBA player he would have lost again. Now we see how many players he loses.

Yep. I heard a guy on T.V. say there was a "new team in college basketball." I don't even know where to start on the absurdity of that comment.

I don't know, I just don't think that was totally possible with how the game was called and the fact that UNC was very big and long inside. With the exception of some of Augustine's 5 fouls, they let Illinois set very physical screens and let May lower his shoulder and run over people all night, they let some very physical play go below the basket. I think that sequence where Powell got 3 offensive boards and kept putting it up with 3 guys draped all over him without a foul pretty much set the tone for the last 25 minutes of the game. They shot too many 3's but I can see how they got in that rut...

Frustrating game to watch. Carolina was able to get it's offense going because everytime they got the ball inside they were at least guaranteed to get a foul called in their favor or else May would overpower a defender. Once they had that working in their favor they were able to open up the outside shooting.

This Illinois team was such a joy to watch this season I wanted to see them win so bad because they play basketball the way it was meant to be played. They really made me a fan of college basketball again this year.

No kidding NC won the game fair and square but they also benefitted from some lopsided officiating.
