Auburn beats N. Carolina at their own game.

Every once in awhile we experience what I call "trancendant sports." We had it last night when Auburn University ran with UNC and buried them with defense and a barrage of 3s. They ran with them, blocked shots, rebounded and shot like they were unconscious.

After the game Coach Pearl was literally in tears talking about the injury to his big man Chuma. It is obvious people on this team care about each other. Very moving to me at least. Coach Williams showed great humility in defeat and and gave high praise to his opponent. He blamed the loss on his coaching. In these troubled times I thought the interviews were very moving.
