Nobody outside of North Carolina cared much about Saturday’s showdown between UNC and N.C. State. With so many consequential games on the agenda, this one sort of just didn’t register. That said, there is a very reasonable case to be made today that this was not only one of the top three games of the day, but that it also probably provided viewers with the most thrilling conclusion of any outing -- from any sport -- we have seen over the past week.
With the score knotted and less than 30 seconds remaining, Gio Bernard went into hero mode.
