Fan ejected after exchange with Rick Pitino

Fan ejected after exchange with Rick Pitino

Not only did his seventh-ranked Louisville squad lose to No. 8 North Carolina, 74-63, the coach had to be restrained while blowing his lid at a Tar Heels fan.

"He just got in my face and said something I didn't like", Pitino said of the fan, whose identity has not been released. As a result, the fan was ejected.

For the second consecutive night, a famous coach from the state of Kentucky had an issue with the fans. UNC made 7-of-8 free throws in the last 76 seconds of the game to ice it for the Tar Heels.

Justin Jackson and Joel Berry have both been tremendous for the Heels this season, combining to average 33.6 points and shoot 40.2 percent from beyond the arc, but this could be their most hard matchup of the season.

Over the next five minutes, the Tar Heels went on a 14-4 run that included baskets from Theo Pinson, Justin Jackson and fan-favorite Stilman White to take a five point lead of their own. UNC entered the night leading both Louisville and No. 10 Duke by a game, but stretched the lead by beating the Cardinals after the Blue Devils' lost at Syracuse earlier in the evening.

Flip or Flop's Tarek and Christina Break Silence on Their Dramatic Split
I've said it before and I'll say it again: The rumors surrounding Tarek and Christina El Moussa's divorce aren't quite believable. Invoking Donald Trump's infamous "fake news" mantra, the two said a lot of the gossip out there about the split is simply untrue.

North Carolina is coming off a 65-41 win over Virginia at home this weekend. Blocked Shots: 5 (Bradley 2, Meeks 2, Berry). "I don't know what was said, but cheer like insane for us, cause I know some of the junk I have to listen to on the road is not what I enjoy". It only resulted in eight second chance points, but armed with the lead for most of the game, it kept the ball away from Louisville.

It is possible we could see a defensive struggle, as was the case on Saturday when UNC faced Virginia, but more likely we will see UNC controlling the pace of the game, which is just fine with Louisville. There are three different teams that have had to do that, especially against really good teams.

Four of 13 free throw attempts? "I take it from the students all the time, you expect it from the students".

The half also featured an angry Roy Williams and a monster dunk from Louisville sophomore Deng Adel. "I know some of the stuff I have to listen to on the road is not what I enjoy". "Defence is", Mitchell said. "That's what we stressed a year ago when we got down around this area. We'll learn from this and get back to work".
