North Carolina just defeated Louisville 99-54. I know the Cardinals had a 19-day COVID pause but my goodness.
*UNC is now 8-0 at home this season
*Day’Ron Sharpe 21 pts 11 reb & Kerwin Walton 19 pts
Obligé cependant de mettre le spotlight sur Day'Ron Sharpe et Kerwin Walton, 40 points à eux deux. Le premier pose un double-double quand le second inscrit 5 tirs primés. Si on ajoute à ça les 10 points de Walker Kessler, on obtient un superbe match pour les freshmen.
