I feel like puking to say but thank you UNC. They beat Notre Dame, making the Wolfpack the only remaining undefeated team in ACC play (in addition to already being the only undefeated team in the country in overall record).

Predictions for final 8 games?
I say 4-4 and final record 25-4 and a 2/3 seed. Home games and hope somehow get in the Greensboro Bracket.

Feb3 vs UNC
Feb7 @ #24 FSU
Feb13 @ #18 Syracuse
Feb18 vs #5 ND
Feb21 vs WF
Feb24 @ UNC
Feb28 @ #3 Louisville
Mar3 vs Miami

Little chance we beat ND or Louisville, definitely not both. FSU lost to Clemson and Cuse lost to GT, so it's not like either is that dominating like we have been. UNC has been on average mediocre this year, yet somehow managed to take down ND. So I wouldn't be surprised if we split there.

4-4 may be right, but this could be anywhere between 3-6 wins. I just hope if we end up losing those three ranked games in a row we don't spiral out of control.

Would love to see our team fully healthy going up against ND and/or UL. Felt like we were poised for a big year with our roster.

Should pay dividends next year having to play younger players and then bringing in a really strong recruiting class.

We should win all remaining home games with the exception of Notre Dame. We definitely can beat them and we'll get an idea of that with how we play UNC-CH this weekend. They beat ND in CH, so it's good that we get ND at home. The road games at FSU and Syracuse will be tough, but we can pull those out. At Louisville is definitely the biggest challenge remaining. Finishing the final 8 games at 4-4 should definitely be doable with 5-3 and 6-2 being great results.

This FSU game is rocky. We had a great 1Q, but have been playing from behind most of the way since then. This will come down to depth and stamina and seeing if we can wear them out and power through.

We also may have lost another player to a knee injury.

Second L in a row.

We had a terrible couple of minutes late. We were in full control, trading 2's, alternating being up 1 and 3 points...then we started throwing the ball away and FSU hit everything they took going on a 10-0 run.

Then we clawed back to being down only 2 with 45 seconds left...just had to force a bad shot and make one on the other end...and we fouled them with 4 seconds on the shot clock. They made both free throws, put us back down 4, and we turned it over again on our end.

We were on the wrong side of a 16-8 turnover count. Can't win games like that.

One of the worst weeks of wolfpack sports I can remember...
Up 3 with 3 minutes left. 1 minute later down 5, 2 minutes later down 7.

Fantastic win to bounce back against a ranked team! The Notre Dame game is Monday, should be a good show of just how tournament ready this team is.

Kiara Leslie got 30 of our points tonight, Cunane another 22, and Rodgers 16.

68/77 points by 3 players, 67.5% of our points by just two of our players

L to ND, no surprise, but it was a blowout. We did put up one of the better offensive performances of anyone else who has played ND this year, but the Irish scored in the 90s and we're not built to keep up with that.

To be fair we hung strong in the first half with a 5-player rotation and then ND exploded in the second half with fast-break points when our legs gave out.

Down 4 players, just can't keep up with top 10 teams from a depth perspective. This team had a really high ceiling when healthy but expectations have to be realistic when you're down 4 good players.

ESPN bracketology has us as a 2-seed right now in Oregon's region which is as good of a spot as we can hope for, but I doubt it will last.

Feb21 vs WF
Feb24 @ UNC
Feb28 @ #4 Louisville
Mar3 vs #14 Miami

We have to beat Wake, or else we might not have any other regular season wins the rest of the way.

3-3....just beat Miami and finish this exact spot and that would be the 3 seed in the ACC and probably a 2/3 in the tourney?

30-point loss to Louisville. I guess it doesn't matter how much you lose by once it's double digits, but damn.

If we beat Miami on Sunday we'll be the 3-seed in the ACCT. Lose and we're 4 thanks to the tie-breaker over Syracuse.

We're 1-3 vs ranked teams. Miami is #15 (we're #10). I think this game will mean a ton for NCAA seeding.

Down 8 at halftime, fantastic effort to come back and win by 2...and it was clutch free throws that helped us hang on, making 5 out of 6 in the final 20 seconds.

Duke plays pit on Wednesday, winner plays FSU on Thursday, winner plays us on Friday, winner plays Louisville on Saturday.

I don't think anyone is expecting anyone other than Louisville and ND to be in the final Sunday, but hopefully we'll got a shot.

Wolfpack women beat #15 Miami yesterday 70-68. Great game and they never gave up. Every time they went down, they had an answer. DD Rogers (had her 4th double-double and career high pts scored) and Kiara Leslie played LIGHTS OUT with Cunane and Koenig making clutch FTs down the stretch.

GO PACK!!! Got the #3 seed in the tourney and Miami will have the #4 seed.

Hey imo, it just shows he only cares about basketball and has no time to worry about getting a good haircut!

I watch every mens and womens team if I'm not working or traveling.

We went from losing to Louisville by 30 points just over a week ago to losing by only 10. FG% went from 38.2 to 51 (Louisville was only 42% this time). We were in it until the start of the 4th quarter, then things fell apart.

We should still be a 3-seed for the NCAAT. Anything short of a sweet-16 appearance will be a disappointment, and the elite-8 should not be unexpected.

Foul trouble in the 2nd quarter is really what killed us. Had to expend too much energy in the 3rd to come back. Just ran out of gas at the end.

Yeah in the first half as soon as they took out Rodgers/Leslie/Cunane the game went downhill. Tried to recover at the end but it was just too late

Well since ESPN leaked the brackets, we're the 3 seed in the Greensboro region, playing Maine in the first round. Baylor is the 1 seed and could possibly face UNC in the second round as they are the 9 seed in the region.

ESPN is fucking garbage for putting the bracket on TV hours before the selection show. Just the latest screwup for this company since they started cutting costs and laying off workers.

I'm so happy we're in the Greensboro region, but at the same time if I were to take my bias out of it isn't it kind of messed up that the 3 and/or 9 seeds could end up with the home advantage if either makes the sweet 16?

I don't think it will matter too much since i think Baylor is the top seed in the whole tournament. It would really surprise me too see anyone other than them make it to the final 4.

What? I watched the entire last game on ESPN2.

Edit: ah i see http://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/story/_/id/26311321/2019-women-ncaa-tournament-tv-s-maps-channels



So if you don't live in a colored state you get shafted because ESPN won't devote airtime on multiple channels to the women's tournament. Fuck them in their stupid misogynistic assholes

We are a very, very good basketball team. We probably still can't keep up with those top 4 or 5 programs, but we sure know how to handle everyone else.

Controlled basically the entire game. UK cut into the lead and was within striking distance most of the way but they could never really make a run.
