Anyway, back to UNC. I guess that awful line change, where Roy put in basically the 4 worst rotation players and Marcus Paige and NC State hit back-to-back threes to cap a 21-7 run and take a 4 point lead, worked. He put the starters right back in, and they closed the game on a 24-7 run for a 15 point win. Toughest ACC schedule (gotta love the unbalanced conference schedules, right?) and sitting all alone in third place at 9-5.
I'm not counting those last 4 points State's starters scored on UNC's walk-ons. Real classy move by Gottfried, though, to press our walk-ons with his starters.
