Revenge of the Tar Heels: Part 2

Adam AmickSenior Writer IMarch 4, 2007

Despite setbacks at the hands of the Wolf Pack, Yellow Jackets, and Hokies, the North Carolina Tar Heels won the ACC today with a resounding victory over Duke.

To quote Bill Murray from Stripes (or was it Ghostbusters?) "We came, we saw, we kick their ASS!"

Redemption is as sweet as revenge is a dish best served cold.

And Tyler Hansbrough got revenge before he was attacked.  Coming off the bench, he led Carolina in scoring with 25, before being given the people's elbow by Duke player Gerald Henderson.

Henderson got the boot, Hansbrough and the Tar Heels got the win, and the ACC Title.

ESPN's Pat Forde said it well, "Tyler Hansbrough got the bloody nose. Duke got the black eye."

And Duke will be without Henderson for their ACC Tournament opener against NC State this coming week.

I say this to State... Flush Dookey.

Meanwhile the UNC faithful will continue in the Group Therapy Program I espoused only a few days ago.  The teams are redeeming themselves well.  The Lady Tar Heels won the ACC Tournament today, and now the men go into the post season as the number one in conference, and following up a big win after two disappointing losses.

Go Tar Heels!
