Tonight’s game against UNC should be a pretty good testament to the type of tournament team we’ll be. It’s not a good matchup for us. While Austin Rivers has gotten better at involving other players on offense, he likes playing defense about as much as Obama and Boehner enjoy lunch together.
We need to play solid defense to have a good chance to win the game, and we will end up playing teams the caliber of UNC if we go deep in the tournament. The Plumlee brothers need to step up for us, since I doubt Rivers will learn to play defense this afternoon before tip-off.
