I've had a lot of stuff yelled at me and responded a few times but what was Rick Pitino going do if he got to the heckler? Really.

No. 8 North Carolina beats No. 7 Louisville 74-63 on ESPN, but the ViewFromVegas is it wasn't an upset as the Tar Heels were 7.5-point home favorites.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Louisville's 3-point attempts have almost all been on catch and shoot situations. Of their 5 of 19 shooting from deep, Cardinals just 2-for-14 on catch and shoot opportunities

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

The only times Louisville has been able to get any offensive momentum in the second is when Donovan Mitchell makes something happen on his own. That's the biggest concern with the Cardinals; do they have the firepower to consistently beat good teams deep in the NCAA Tournament?

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Not a knock on Quentin Snider, but Louisville offense just seems better with the ball in Donovan Mitchell's hands. He's scored 11 of Cardinals 13 points this half -- and he assisted the other basket.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

I think North Carolina got the memo about being more aggressive and attacking Louisville at the rim.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina up three at half despite being outscored by Louisville 26-12 in points in the paint. Tar Heels have only been outscored in that category three times this season (Davidson-W, @Georgia Tech-L, @Miami-L)

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Pitino was trying to get a timeout about as soon as Mathiang picked up his dribble. No one saw him to call it

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Louisville defense has Carolina a bit out of sorts. Heels already with 5 turnovers -- they averaged only 12.1 per game

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Dean Smith Center crowd just erupted as Syracuse win over Duke displayed on video boards.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Game so far reminds me of a favorite saying of a former professor, "all forward movement is not progress." Carolina with 5 offensive rebounds, but it's shooting 2-14 FG
