WOW.  I don’t watch BBall this early in the season but what an upset. 

For context they are a MVC team that was 11-21 last year.

The chink in the armor is starting to show on the teams full of one and done players. Early before they mature into a team you go up against a team full of upperclassmen and get beat. In my opinion having one or two one year players is fine. With all the years of Cal’s formula with this he has one title. Duke has none. UNC has won one, been to the final game once. You need to have some players come back every year to maintain continuity. Early games like this will be more common. Imagine if UK and Duke played true road games OOC like UNC. There would be a lot more games like this.

What an amazing upset.
You make a good point, UNC 98.
