End Of The Run...

Heels claim 16th ACC Title with 89-80 win over Wolfpack.

What a four day run... I'm wiped out and I didn't have to get off of the couch. What an effort by the Pack. Sid had them believing when the rest of us were giving up. When State went down 16 I was afraid they were going to get run out of the building.

Brandan Wright was named Tournament MVP. I guess it was the 10-12 shooting performance in the BC game and the 14 first-half points that earned it for him. Brandon Costner broke NC State's tournament scoring record with 90. Costner and Wright were unanimous choices for the 1st team. They were joined by Gavin Grant, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington.

The 2nd team consisted of Courtney Fells, Ben McCauley, Engin Atsur, Al Thornton and Tyrese Rice. Wonder if a team has ever placed all five starters on the All-Tournament teams before?

Close call on whether it should have been Wright or Costner. Amazing trounament for Costner. Got to believe putting 5 on two teams has never been done before. Amazing.

I'll try to post some more soon about the tampa experience and some about State's tourney.
