Tarheels Show the Roadmap to the Championship
As much as I hate the North Carolina Tarheels and their program I do have a lot of respect for the seniors on their basketball team. They had all of the talent in the world last year and just fell short. Lawson, Green, Hansborough and crew could have all went to the NBA but instead they chose to stay in school and try to win that National Championship, and they succeeded in huge fashion. The Tar Heels won each of their tournament games by double digits and completely man handled Michigan State in what was essentially a home game for the Spartans. I think we could have seen this many times in College basketball. If these top notch recruiting classes would spend their time in the NCAA working on their skills and building a team. The Tar Heels figured it out, and this success may elevate their draft status. Most competitors will tell you its about the Championships, and they stayed and passed up millions of dollars just for that Championship. Congratulations to the Tar Heels.
