College basketball is not like the movies where the sequel invariably pales in comparison to the original.
Thanks to the lessons that players learn from film, the rematch of any great game has the potential to be even better. The same goes for any great individual battle that takes place as a subplot to those games.
North Carolina defeated both Kentucky and Louisville last season, thanks to Marcus Paige outdueling the Harrison twins and Montrezl Harrell struggling against the Heels' green, but plentiful, crew of big men. Both games get a sequel this season, and with them Harrell and the Harrisons get a chance to redeem themselves.
These are just a pair of the great individual matchups we have to look forward to as the college basketball season draws near. There are a couple of other sequels in the offing, but many of these are potential blockbusters that we may never see again.
So start forming a line to the left, because tickets are going fast. And make sure your popcorn is ready.
