UNC 70, Indiana 63

After hearing of Wake Forest's ugly loss, Carolina fans were probably relishing the thought of meeting the Deacons in January. But the Heels looked sluggish against Indiana.

The good news is the Heels win by seven when they're not quite on their game. Felton and McCants lead the way, and Marvin Williams comes off the bench to snag 12 rebounds.

The bad news is Sean May was taken out of his game early and Jackie Manuel posted zeroes across the board for the second time this season. The Heels went way over four minutes without scoring in the second half and committed 23 turnovers.

Let's be fair, though: fatigue was probably a factor and some good looks just didn't fall.

So, in my mind, conference play remains unpredictable.
