ACC Championship Game 2011, Duke Vs. UNC: Tar Heels Making Slight Progress

North Carolina still trails Duke by a considerable margin in the 2011 ACC Championship Game, but they've started the second half looking considerably better than they have at any other point in the game thus far. John Henson continues to be UNC's most aggressive player, and he's notched an incredible 12 rebounds already. Additionally, Harrison Barnes has scored on a nice reverse lay-up, and it was the kind of basket that could go a long way towards restoring his confidence. The front line is starting to look better, but Kendall Marshall and Dexter Strickland definitely need to up their game for the Tar Heels.

Despite their early foul trouble, Duke have avoided getting any of their players into serious trouble. Five players have two personal fouls, but no one player has more than two. 

UNC are starting to look better, but they still have a massive comeback to make. At the under 16 media timeout, they trail 49-34 with 15:57 remaining in the game.
