Akil Mitchell couldn’t hide a smile that stretched all the way from Charlottesville to Charlotte. He had been waiting for this moment for a long, long time.
Virginia’s 6-foot-8 senior rebounder had tasted victory over North Carolina once before (a nine-point home win last January), but this one was different. Blowing out the Tar Heels, one of the kings of college basketball, doesn’t come easy or often.
