I don’t know if UK could have beaten North Carolina or not, but I believed they had been playing at a level that made that not just possible but likely. Then the wheels came off against Indiana, exposing all of the team’s early season deficiencies all at once. That is what usually happens in this tournament to frauds when a good coach gets a week to prepare a plan to expose those deficiencies. That is what happened to UK against IU. If IU had not done it, I now think UNC would have.
