PITTSBURGH -- It's time to shed the label of this being a one-sided team and program.
It takes a capable unit on both sides of the ball to contend for the Coastal Division crown, and the Tar Heels further proved that they have that in their win over Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
"We talked about this being a bend but don't break defense - they've surprassed that," said Inside Carolina's Greg Barnes postgame. "This is a legitimate defense. What Gene Chizik and his staff have done is nothing short of remarkable.
"No longer is this (just) an offensive team. Now you've got an offense and defense that play well off each other. That combination of an explosive offense and a solid defense was too much for Pittsburgh to overcome."
