UNC vs. Michigan State – Carrier Classic Recap

For those that missed it or didn’t even know about it….this was history!

Via SNEAKERNEWS

College basketball fans were in for an amazing treat when #1 ranked UNC faced off against Michigan State atop an aircraft carrier in Coronado, California. Dubbed the Carrier Classic, this sporting event was a special way to honor the members of the Armed Forces on Veterans Day; the significance of the game seemed paltry to the true purpose of November 11th, as thousands of military veterans as well as President Barack Obama were in attendance, celebrating the remembrance of our nation’s most courageous individuals in a unique way.

Both UNC and Michigan State took the outdoor court wearing the Carrier Classic collection uniforms and sneakers, but also spotted were a number of notable sneakers that were clearly from the players’ own collections; The Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’, Air Jordan V ‘Wolf Grey, Air Jordan XIII White/University Blue, Air Jordan 2011 UNC PE, and the Nike Zoom Kobe VI were spotted alongside the Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 and Air Jordan 8.0. Check out a full recap of the game and the awe-inspiring outdoor basketball court below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more NCAA Feet features as the college basketball season rolls on! via Yahoo!.

Gucci Mane’s Legal Problems Keep Him From Performing At North Carolina A&T University Homecoming Concert

Well looks like even the fame is not big enough to overcome legal issues. Gucci Mane was supposed to be on the line-up of stars to perform at North Carolina’s AT&T Homecoming concert and was banned due to legal issues. This is not a good look as he has been on a really big buzz and not being allowed to perform out of his home state (Georgia) is making him miss out on a lot of shows and money. The concert went on as planned, with acts such as Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz, Fabolous, Mario, GS Boyz and FLY picking up the slack.

UNC Defeats Villanova 83-69

ncb_g_ellington2_576

This was an ugly win by UNC as they missed 15 free-throws, got beat on the boards, and had less points in the paint. The most important factor though was that they won the game and by 14 points. Tyler Hanbrough had 18 points and 11 rebounds in the 83-68 rout of Villanova. North Carolina was able to pick apart Nova’s game and is now headed to the National Championship Game to face Michigan State tomorrow night.

Florida State Upsets UNC In ACC Tournament

Missing Ty Lawson was crucial for North Carolina as the Tar Heel were stunned by the Florida State Seminoles today in the semi-finals of the ACC tournament. Tony Douglas shines for FSU as he scored 27 points in the win today. UNC’s bid is just about solid, but Florida State may get a higher seed with this win and one for tomorrow’s championship game. I still think that UNC is overrated.

North Carolina defeats Duke 101-87

unc

Last night’s win gave UNC’s Tyler Hansbrough and Danny Green a 4-0 record at Chapel Hill for their college careers. What looked like a close win for Duke turned into close to a blowout win by North Carolina. Ty Lawson helped the second half run by the Tar Heels by scoring 21 of his season high 25 in the second half. Even shooting 62% from the floor and 67% from the three-point line could not help the Blue Devils keep their lead and defeat North Carolina. This was the first of two games between the two teams. The finals score of the game was UNC 101-87.
