As it happened: North Carolina 83, Villanova 69

Before you read the transcript, think about this...

A lot of people are going to point to Villanova's struggles from three-point range as the big reason why the Wildcats lost, and there's some merit in that.

But the really glaring statistic to me is that 'Nova made only seven of 24 TWO-point attempts in the second half, especially in light of their having made 14 of 29 in the first half.

Furthermore, the Wildcats pulled down eight offensive rebounds in the second half. That's more offensive rebounds than two-point field goals made after halftime.

How often do you see that? Not very, I would think.
