UK-UNC Tidbits

Daniel Orton's dad said players were so excited for this game and he had no doubt they would win. He said it was all they had been talking about.

A few little behind the scenes notes just for you:

1. Wall, Cousins and Bledsoe all have numerous family members at a game for the first time. Meant a lot to all of them. Ramon Harris had extra folks, too.

2. National writers Andy Katz and Mike DeCourcy were stunned that it took UK almost an hour to make players available to the media. UNC players had an open locker room for media, showered, dressed in coats and ties and left 20 minutes before UK made the first player available. Katz and DeCourcy both said Cal was never like that at memphis and opened the locker room there. Both planned to ask him what the delays are all about sinceit has been stanard operatin procedure now.

3. Before the game former UK assistant Doug Barnes said he had a friend coaching at UNC and he was afraid UK's speed would embarrass the Tar Heels. He said they feared trying to stop Wall. guess the coach knew what he was talking about.

4. Daniel Orton's dad said players were so excited for this game and he had no doubt they would win. He said it was all they had been talking about.

5. first time in years there were more media members at UK than there were seats. Nice problem for the Cats to have again.
