Carolina got their ass ran over last night.
Jesus christ, this was just terrible all around.
Weird thing is, I figured it happened.
Indiana right now is the best team in land. Cody Zeller is a beast. Athletic unlike his brother, but he runs the floor just like Tyler. It’s incredible how much his game is so polished. If he’s not a top 5 pick in June, I’d be very very shocked. The two guys that I love on Indiana are Victor Oladipo, and Jordan Hulls. Honestly, for IU to reach their ceiling, these two guys have to bring it every night, and tonight they did. Hulls is that pure white boy point guard who plays hard, shoots well enough, and is a leader. Everyone looks at Zeller as the guy, but if you stop Hulls, you can beat IU. If Hulls gets loose and hits a three or two, IU will easily roll.
Carolina right now is young, and taking bumps early. A lot of them. Reggie Bullock seemed like he didn’t want to join the party tonight. James Michael Mcadoo played soft. Dexter Strickland has to stop shooting jumpshots. The funny thing is, I don’t think this loss was that bad as people will make it. Indiana did stretch this game out as we all expected, but Carolina couldn’t hit good, wide open shots in the 2nd half, while Indiana, playing at home did.
I’m not too concerned about the rankings because it’s November, but if Carolina gets whipped like that in ACC Play (Carolina’s non-conference schedule is fairly easy with the exception of UNLV, but that’s in the Dean Dome), I’ll start to get concerned.
