2008 UNC Men’s College Basketball

The Tarheels of the University of North Carolina Men’s Basketball team led by Ty Lawson and Tyler Hansbrough has started the season 8-0 with impressive wins over the likes of Notre Dame, Michigan State, Oregon and Kentucky to open the season.  Even though UNC is in the ACC and will have their hands full with perennial rival Duke and an impressive Wake Forrest squad they are still almost a lock as a #1 seed come tournament time if they can take the ACC.  After their 98-63 domination of Big Ten favorite Michigan State on Wednesday night they are my early pick for the National Championship in Tyler Hansbrough’s senior year.
