The season will be another first for UNC Basketball, in that, the issue is has any college basketball team ever won a national championship in the NCAA's and then turn around the next year and win the NIT. Two national championships in a row. Very few teams have done that. If UNC can win the NIT championship, they once again establish, another record in the record book, and this time an unusual record, that does not so much involve the ususal massive competitive nature that is pervasive or inherent in NCAA basketball. With the past season that fizzled out, with turnover problems, amongst other failings, this would be a neat accomplishment if they can win on THursday night, and capture this unusual NCAA-NIT back to to back championsips, title. Its a lot better than winging their way into the NCAA tournament and going out in the first or second round. Wrapping up this past season with five wins and a championship is much more palatable. So another prominent record, this time of an unusual nature, is on the line with the Thursday night championship game for UNC.
