Dexter Strickland Dunk on Miles Plumlee (Video) Capped Carolina’s Win
North Carolina beat Duke 81-67 Saturday evening in Chapel Hill to win the ACC regular season title. Freshman Harrison Barnes, who chose UNC over the Dukies, was a difference-maker scoring 18 points. His teammate Dexter Strickland wasn’t as big of a factor scoring just eight, but he put the exclamation point on the Tar Heels’ win with this monstrous dunk over Duke big man Miles Plumlee. Check out the video:
It was quite the turnaround season for the Heels who went 20-17 and 5-11 in the ACC last season. They’re 24-6 this season after going 14-2 in conference play and they should be a top three seed come tournament time. Oh yeah, and that change to Kendall Marshall as the team’s full-time point guard? It seems to be working out pretty well.
