This last Wednesday night I was able to witness one of the best basketball games that I will ever see in my lifetime. The Duke and North Carolina game is one that will be talked about for years to come. Throughout the game the two ACC giants stood toe to toe, trading blows.
It looked like it was over when UNC pulled out to an 8 point lead with under 3 minutes in the game. Tyrus Jones put the Blue Devils on his back and willed them to overtime. Once overtime was reached Jahlil Okafor, who many consider to be the best player this year in college basketball, came to life. UNC still put up a good fight in overtime, and almost secured the rebound on the last free throw attempt that could have led to a basket and a second overtime. I hope to see a rematch in the ACC tournament and maybe even big dance in March.
