Dan Bonner, college basketball announcer for CBS and the ACC Network, joined the Mac Attack this morning and said he thinks there is a chance that this could go a little differently than some are expecting.
“North Carolina can certainly go in there and handle it. I would just point you to all the falderol go on at Duke. In my mind, the biggest thing about the event from the standpoint of the game, we are here in March and Duke is facing a team that is a desperate team in terms of getting an NCAA Tournament bid. People are saying the thing that will guaratee North Carolina’s entry into the NCAA Tournament is a win at Duke. North Carolina is a very talented team; they’re a team that got there head handed to them by Duke in Chapel Hill and they are very well aware of what this game means for their status in the NCAA Tournament.”
