Scenes from Carolina Basketball - Well, We Tried Edition

Last night we watched Duke beat Carolina at the Dean Dome. Although we were bummed at the loss, given how this season is shaping up, we were glad it was only a 10 point loss. That is a strange statement for a Tar Heel fan to make.

We did get to see Tyler Hansbrough's jersey get retired to the front row of retired jerseys in the rafters. Tyler was there in person for the ceremony.

Coach Roy gave a brief speech, and they played a highlight reel on the video boards.

Tyler gave a very brief typical-Tyler thank you speech, and they presented him with a framed jersey.

I wish I could've captured how loud the crowd was when I took this photo. It was pretty incredible. He will go in the history books as one of the all time greatest college players.

Funniest moment of the night: The Rednecks called Kyle Singler (a Duke player) "Sunglare" all night because "his skin is so pale, you can tell he's never seen the sun." I've got to give them credit for that one -- pretty creative!

Hey, at least Carolina beat State over the weekend, so we remain out of the ACC cellar.
