    Has there ever been a defending champ in better shape to defend their title? UNC is unbeatable. Mail trophy to Chapel Hill.

    This game will be a blowout for the Cheats. No way they lose this one!

    Dudes are awesome. Coach is unbeatable. They never cheat. A&M should just head on home 'cause they're going to lose.

    Three by A&M, but it's pointless. Just wasted points as it won't matter in the end....

    This is going to be a run and gun game with minimal defense, I can tell. Final score in the 80s-90s (but A&M will be the one in the 80s).

    so, I have a question regarding illegal offensive screens.

    How is it illegal to move if you are at the top of the key, but Maye from UNC just completely blocked out the aTm defender in the lane on Berry's drive for the and1.

    UNC is so good they walk and the refs refuse to call it.

    aTm needs to live in the post and get UNC in foul trouble b/c they certainly should be able to do so.

    A&M should never take an outside shot until the bigs touch the ball

    Why is it some players are untouchable and always seem to get the favorable whistle? Berry's one of them. Bagley another. Any decent PG or top player on any SEC team against UK is also in that group. However, in all of my years watching UK ball, I can't recall any of our guards getting the "breath on it's a foul" treatment. Blue tinted glasses?

    No doubt - I think he walked and double-dribbled in the same sequence with no call

    Pointing out that it may be a jinx attempt only nullifies said attempt

    I’m not saying that’s what is going on here but it’s good to keep in mind

    Berry arm bars away the defense when he drives, no call
    UNC did 360 and carried the ball no call
    UNC over the back causes TAM to lose ball, no call

    Im starting to see a trend here

    agreed. I don't think UNC has ANY chance to stop them...except fouling (but Maye just fouled with no call), so maybe that approach still won't work.

    A&M playing 5 on 8. Yes, I'm biased, but come on.

    If they play at this pace and UTAMs guards think they can win this game on their own then this is going to get ugly.

    Pinson has walked several times already in this game. Maye with a moving screen on nearly every UNC drive.. and a lot of contact down low with Texas AM. Kindve embarrassing for the sport to see this type of stuff happen

    Kennedy needs to call time out now and tell the refs the whole nations watching, needs to be called a fair game, so far it's not.

    UNC's run last year was greatly influenced by the officiatinig in almost every game

    I dont get why they get such a friendly whistle

    I have a feeling UNC wins this one big. Like 12-15 or so.

    I think they have a lot of UNC grads in a lot of high places, both the NCAA and the media.

    Guess people are just going to turn a blind eye to one of their media big dogs and his cocaine addiction (Skipper).

    Luke MAy just shouldered a guy trying to close out on berry… that's clearly a text book screen… great no call by the refs

    Whats wrong with Davis, he can't even hardly run up and down the floor and is a non factor, guess Carolina* has the wrong color blue on to get him going.

    Maye sure is a master of screening and picking. It helps that he doesn't need to be set.

    A ref called a charge on Berry? He won't be moving on.
