Usually, senior night goes smooth for players of the home team. Although the Tar Heels defeated Notre Dame 63-61 in the final seconds, the Fighting Irish didn’t go down without a fight. That fight however wasn’t enough as UNC finally pulled away with made free-throws and forced turnovers.
With senior guard Wade Moody at the center of it all, UNC got treated to custom Jordan Super.Fly 2 and Jordan CP3.VII iD’s. Made possible through NikeiD, this collection featured “Chroma” and “Camo” options in official team colors.
