UNC is the 2009 National Champion!

The college basketball season is over, and the tears that may eventually flow will be those of happiness. North Carolina beat Michigan State for the second time this year, 89-72. When it was 21-7, I knew it was over. UNC came out to silence the partisan Michigan State crowd and dropped a 55-point half on the Spartans. Two more points than the first half of their game in December, which my family gave me shit for watching but I digress, and two more than the most ever scored in a first half of a title game. However, Michigan St. did manage to get it down to fifteen after being down twenty-four in the second half. While UNC was one of the highest scoring teams all season, it was the twenty-one turnovers they forced that ultimately won the game, led by eight steals by Ty Lawson. My only down thought in that whole game was that I wished Danny Green hadn't fouled out of his final game as a Tarheel. I'm thrilled that this team who got so close last year has finally cut down the nets. Now about finding the money to purchase a souvenir. And why does the women's version of the locker room t-shirt not come in gray? The thought of rain and a tight white shirt isn't pretty.
