Wasn't meant to be...

That was a great championship game - living up to a #1 vs. #2 matchup. In the end, it was just too large of a hurdle to overcome. UNC won the game down in the post. We had no answers for Mr. May. But, the guys went down fighting - never giving up until the very last shot. We had our chances, but it just wasn't meant to be.

Don't get me started on the officiating, especially in the first half. Augustine goes 9 minutes, 5 fouls, and 0 points - yeah; right! But, I think Carolina had more answers and built up a big 1st-half lead which proved to be too much to overcome.

On a personal note, this was a great Illini team. Actually, at 37-2 - this will go down as one of the best TEAMS in Illini history. What a great year for 2nd - year coach Bruce Webber.
