04/05/2005: Fooey on those Carolina Tar Heels
The Illini did succumb Fighting to the very last in the 75-70 loss to North Carolina.
There won't be "history" for the Illini books, but as Mike Downey at the Chicago Tribune had this to say about the Fighting Illini:
"Dee Brown, Deron Williams, Luther Head, James Augustine and Roger Powell, dressed in orange, came out to show a crowd of 47,262, most of them dressed in orange, and the Tar Heels of North Carolina that it was true, that they really were one of college basketball's best teams ever."
