Happy Birthday, Herb

NC State had every reason to be on fire in tonight's game with Carolina. They had not lost a conference game at home all season. They were playing their arch-rival Tarheels, and a win would all but sew up a #2 seed in the ACC tournament. The stars of NC State's 1974 and 1983 national championship teams were also on hand. Hell, it was even coach Herb Sendek's birthday.

So why did the Wolfpack not show up? It's baffling.

Carolina beat State to the ball to claim 15 offensive rebounds, and they shot lights out for a couple significant stretches. State had no answer for David Noel, Reyshawn Terry, or Tyler Hansbrough. Each scored at will.

Now that Carolina has swept the season series from State, even with a very young team, Roy Williams should be named the ACC Coach of the Year. Oh, and happy birthday, Herb.
