The Tar Heel football team in 2021 was riddled with inconsistencies and the same looks as if it can be said for the Tar Heel basketball team so far this season. Following arguably the best all-around performance of the season against Boston College, the Tar Heels were picked apart on Wednesday night by a less than stellar Notre Dame, especially on the defensive end of the floor. The Fighting Irish shot 47.5% (29-61) overall on the night and 41.9% (13-31) from beyond the arc in what was another questionable effort defensively from the Tar Heel that left fans with something to desire.
Terrence Oglesby, basketball analyst for The Field of 68, stopped by the Mac Attack earlier this morning to discuss the Tar Heels struggles. He says it all starts with the effort.
“There effort isn’t Carolina level of acceptance right now. It needs to be better, especially on their rotations. It seems like when a guy gets beat everybody gets irritated with the guy who gets beat. This is high major basketball. If a guy gets beat defensively, everything behind it has to be sharp.”
