So, as a Tar Heel, the perfect basketball season contains the following:
a) win the ACC regular season
b) beat Duke every time you play them
c) win the ACC tournament
d) go to the Final Four
e) win the National Championship
This year, the Heels went 1-1 versus Duke, so “all of the above” is not an option, but yesterday was another good day as the Heels outlasted Clemson to win the ACC Tournament. They now move onto the NCAA Tournament, where they are the overall #1 seed. And while their possible draw doesn’t look very easy, they do have the benefit of having the potential of playing every game before the Final Four in the state of North Carolina.
More excited though was our dog Eutaw, who is wholeheartedly going to be rooting for the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, who’s team won the America East regular season and conference title.. You see, Eutaw is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever (actually, we’re pretty sure she’s the best-chessie-ever), and the mascot for UMBC is the Retrievers. Eutaw will be glued to the set when UMBC gets set to take on nearby powerhouse Georgetown in the opening round of the tournament on Friday.
