The Tar Heel basketball entered last Monday meeting with the Virginia Tech Hokies needing a win about as bad as any team in college basketball as they had fallen squarely on to the bubble. While it may not have been the prettiest win, that was the starting point for a 3-0 week which included a 100-80 win over NC State on Saturday that was desperately needed for this Tar Heel team to avoid falling completely out of the tournament field.
Terrence Oglesby of The Field of 68 stopped by the Mac Attack this morning to talk about the weekend in the ACC and while he was encouraged by some of what the Tar Heels did against the Wolfpack, he still thinks that the 3-0 record this week was more about the teams they faced than the Tar Heels turning the corner.
“I’m still a little bit skeptical and it for no other reason than they’re beating up on team’s that are at the bottom of the conference.”
