Inside Carolina Basketball at college

College basketball saw a wild start to the new year. On Saturday, we witnessed a shocking upset as No. Unranked Miami defeated 2 Duke at home. As a result, the Blue Devils are not ranked in the AP Top 25.

After the loss, Duke star Paolo Banchero stated that it was a “tough game”. We knew they were a strong team. They stayed with it throughout the game. They had 30 seconds left in the game and were leading. Their point guard, Charlie Moore, was their leader throughout the game. He made big plays after big plays, and took big shots after big shots. They didn’t seem to be bothered by being on the road and being at Cameron [Indoor Stadium]. They are really skilled so they went in and played and executed. It’s just a lesson to us: we have to be sharp. Every time teams play us, they will be sharp and giving their best shot. We have to do the same and give each team our best shot.

There were many moving parts within the top 10, due to Duke’s loss. It’s not the first unexpected result we’ll witness as we enter conference play.


There were no changes as Baylor won a 76-64 victory on the road against TCU in Scott Drew’s 600th game at Baylor. The Bears shot 13-of-27 from downtown, and 53% from the field. They also scored 23 fast break points and got 20 points from their bench. This came after an 84-74 win over Oklahoma. The Bears are ready to defend their national title.


After losing to Duke and Alabama, Gonzaga has won five of its last five games. Chet Holmgren had 18 points and eight rebounds Saturday’s victory over Pepperdine, 117-83. Gonzaga, despite a brief skid for a second, looks all the more like a contender for the national title in 2022.

  • UCLA  

UCLA beat Long Beach State 96 -78 and Cal 60 -52 after a three-week COVID pause. This brought UCLA’s season record to 10-1. UCLA recorded 15 turnovers and nine steals. Five shots were blocked in just 62 California possessions. The defensive intensity in Berkeley was exceptional.
