UNC-VT: Idols Idols Everywhere

By Jeff Lippman - March 02, 2007

North Carolina is the state that brought singers Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler, Clay Aiken and others to American Idol fame.

So far this ACC Tournament has seen its fair share of Idols. Boston College starting forward Ayla Brown was a finalist last season, and today, before the UNC-VT game, Jamie Lynn Ward, a contestant on this year's Idol--she was kicked off on the last day of Hollywood week--sang the national anthem.

Ward is a Reidsville, N.C. resident and Tar Heels fan. After she finished singing our nation's anthem, I caught up with her to get a prediction on today's game.

First I asked her if she knew anything about the sport of women's basketball and she promised me that she's a big fan and even follows the Heels.

So when I asked her for her final score prediction you can imagine my dismay when, "45-34" was her answer.

The 17-year-old southern belle with a Carolina drawl held firm to her prediction even when I informed her that is an extremely low scoring game, especially for the high powered offense of North Carolina.

Ah well, she kicked ass singing the national anthem.
