Meadowlands: Heels Win It

By David Scott - March 24, 2007

UNC advances with a 74-64 win as Brandan Wright finishes iwth a game-high 21 points and nine rebounds. Taj Gibson finished with 16 points and 12 rebouinds for 'SC.

. . . Sunday's game will be a 5:05 tip, meaning it is the second of the CBS doubleheader and we will add the fourth of the Final Four teams from this site (as expected with CBS's No. 1 team of Packer and Nantz at this venue).

. . .Tim Floyd was T'ed up with 48.5 seconds to go after contesting an offensive foul call on Taj Gibson. Floyd stepped onto the court and threw the two pieces of paper he had in his hand onto the court in the direction of the official.

Somewhere in El Paso, Floyd's mentor, Don Haskins, smiled at that one.

Replays indicated the call was a bit suspicious at best. It was Gibson's fifth foul of the game.

. . . Some final numbers from this one: USC shot just 33 percent in the second half (22 points) while the Heels shot 41 percent in the second half (41 points). Carolina out-rebounded the Trojans 46-39 and USC had twice as many turnovers (18-9).

Danny Green had a solid game off the bench for UNC with eight points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes of play.

. . . We'll be back on Saturday with some coverage of the between-day press conferences which begin at 1:30 p.m. EST.
