Meadowlands: Still Buzzing

By David Scott - March 23, 2007

The arena is still abuzz over the Hoyas last second win over Vandy and the pro-UNC crowd let out a big cheer as the Tar Heels took the court for pre-game warm-ups. The USC Trojans were received with mostly boos except from their one main section of fans opposite the home bench.

. . . Some final stats from the first game that really tell the story: The Hoyas out-rebounded the 'Dores 40-26 and shot 60 percent from 3-point land in the second half (8 of 19, 42 percent for the game). Vandy was 9 of 27 from 3-point land, but just 3 of 12 in the seocnd half (33 percent for the game).

Both Derrick Byars and Dan Cage had 17 points each for Vandy to lead all scorers, as the Hoyas got 15 each from DaJuan Summers and Jeff Green.

Shan Foster had 16 points for Vandy and Roy Hibbert finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds in 27 miunutes, after fouling out with just under five minutes left in the game.

. . . The UNC-USC game tips in 10 minutes and the officials for that one will be Tom Lopes, Mike Sanzere, Michael G. Roberts and standy official Zelton D. Steed.

. . . The Tar Heels' lone starting senior, Reyshawn Terry (strep throat) is expected to play.

. . . Vandy had just five turnovers for the game and 17 assists on their 21 field goals. The Hoyas had 11 turns , but just four in the second half.
