Statistics don't always tell the whole story. They can even be used to deceive. However, reading box scores and stat lines are great ways to complement an understanding of a team's performance.
Occasionally, there are a few stats that pop off the screen. These are numbers so outrageous, some large conclusions must be drawn from them. Or, the numbers don't feel right. They are eye-popping only in their unbelievablility...and yes, I might have made that word up.
The 2013-14 season for the North Carolina Tar Heels has produced some numbers that fit both categories. Some of these eye-popping stats are amazing and exciting. Others are alarming or doomed for decline. Either way, they help to tell the story of the Tar Heels' season.
