When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

We're not in Kansas anymore

The NCAA men's basketball semifinal game between UNC and Kansas was not the nailbiter that I expected. More's the pity.

UNC collapsed comprehensively in the first half, going into the locker room, unbelievably, almost thirty points down...and though they whittled the Kansas lead to four points briefly in the second half, Kansas led and essentially remained in control for the entire game.

The outcome was never really in doubt.

UNC had a great year. The played a very nearly perfect season and were dominant throughout the tourney.

I had been really looking forward to last night's game, because I expected that it would be the first time the Heels would really be challenged in the tournament.

Be careful what you wish for, I reckon. :-)

The next big news out of Carolina basketball is likely to be Tyler Hansbrough's decision about whether to turn pro.
