One more small point

There's no doubt in my mind that UNC is an incredible team, packed with great players. That said, they are the only bright spot this year for the ACC. As I reviewed their schedule, their only true "Big quality" win was over Duke. I think UofL has played tougher schedule (RPI be damned) and we are probably more braced for a huge game like this. That is not to say that we should be favored, but as we gaze starry-eyed at the brilliance that is UNC, it's good to have perspective. We may not have played a team as strong as UNC all year, but they certainly have not played a team as strong as we are. And I think we've played a lot of teams that could beat UNC on a given night - WVU, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Tennessee, Pitt, UConn et al. I believe that if we come out strong and get a lead then we can win. Conversely if they establish themselves early then we are going to have trouble. But even then we tend to be a much better second half team so if we can stay within striking distance we always have a chance.  But if we can maintain a decent lead into the middle of the second half UNC will start to huck up ill-advised threes like they did last year versus GTown. That's what I want to see.
