Here is Head Coach Mike Fox on the season. “We got off to a good start and obviously expectations have been really high for our ball club since the very beginning and that is a little unnerving as a coach, but veteran team and I think our players just derelished those expectations and really had them of themselves,” says Fox. “As we all know we are only about half way through the season, but so far we’ve played at a very high level.” The Tar Heels opened the season 16-0, which was ended with their first loss to Miami in game one of a series.
