Tyler Zeller may wish every night were Senior Night.
North Carolina’s center dropped 30 points (20 on free throws) during an 88-64 win against Maryland Wednesday night, making a strong case to be named ACC player of the year.
“I thought Carolina was great, especially Zeller,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. “We couldn’t guard him. All night he kept drawing fouls on us. He controlled the game at the foul line, I thought, and we didn’t have a post guy who really took on the challenge all night with him.”
So, when a guy delivers like that during his last home game, I say make it the Photo of the Day, particularly when the fans do their part with something like this. Call it an unofficial rule.
