Live from the Bahamas: It's me breaking down North Carolina's 74-66 defeat against Butler today in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Big-time breakdown today for the Tar Heels, who lacked hustle and want-to and, for about 10 minutes in the second half, lacked the ability to make a shot.
I wrote about it all right here. And talked about it above with my feet in the sand. A little bit better backdrop than what we had in Charlotte on Saturday.
