GREENSBORO -- Had Harrison Barnes gotten a chance to loft a last-second shot at Greensboro Coliseum on Saturday, the freshman wing is fairly certain that he – and his North Carolina teammates – would be celebrating a four-game winning streak.
Instead, after losing a late 7-point lead, and the game to No. 22 Texas 78-76 at Greensboro Coliseum, the Tar Heels (7-4) are left to dissect how so much went wrong, so quickly.
“I was supposed to get the shot on that last play – but I was a little too far [away], and they defended it well,’’ said Barnes, who finished with 16 points. “ I felt like all I needed on that one was a touch to knock it down … for us not to be able to get a good shot off on that last play, that’s frustrating.”
