North Carolina Basketball: Final Grades for 2013-14 Season

North Carolina’s roller coaster 2013-14 season came to a close on Sunday, as the Tar Heels lost a closely fought battle with Iowa State 85-83 in the NCAA tournament’s Round of 32.

UNC’s 24-10 record does not tell the up-and-down story of this year. The Heels had more than a few incredible victories and just as many puzzling losses.

Let’s take a quick look at how each of the starters, the rotation players and the coaching staff graded out for this unique season.

DeAndre Kane drove for the game-winning layup with 1.6 seconds left and No. 3 seed Iowa State beat North Carolina 85-83 on Sunday, advancing to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2000. The Tar Heels (24-10) are gone in the NCAA tournament’s opening weekend for the first time in consecutive seasons under coach Roy Williams. North Carolina’s Nate Britt raced the ball up court after Kane’s basket, but time expired before he could reach midcourt and call a timeout. Right away Williams – who collapsed his hands on his knees as Britt dribbled toward him and the buzzer sounded – shook Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg’s hand as North Carolina began absorbing a last-second heartbreaker.

North Carolina survives scare by Providence (Yahoo Sports)

North Carolina isn’t going home early like Duke. James Michael McAdoo sank two free throws in the final 3.5 seconds after the No. 6 seed Tar Heels had trailed just a minute earlier, and North Carolina hung on to beat pesky 11th-seeded Providence 79-77 Friday night. Had North Carolina (24-9) lost, it would’ve been the first time since 1979 the Tar Heels and rival Blue Devils lost on the same day of the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils fell earlier to 14th-seeded Mercer, and the Friars nearly handed North Carolina a similar stunner.
