Ten years ago, this game would have been considered a silver lining. Those are long gone for a program that has established a tradition of No.9 Wisconsin.

The North Carolina Tar Heels are no longer in the market for a point guard in the Class of 2013. Nate Britt (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga), ESPNU's No. 15 overall player and No. 2 rated junior point guard, committed to Roy Williams on Tuesday.
