A Tar Heel basketball player became a household name, an ace pitcher recorded his first loss, and a Carolina alumnus bragged on his university over Twitter. Let’s take a look on the past week for Carolina alumni.
Matt Harvey: The Met’s ace has to be frustrated with his hitters this season. With the fifth best ERA in the major leagues, Harvey’s only been credited with five wins on the season. This week the former Tar Heel pitcher recorded his first loss. He threw 7 innings, yielded only five hits, one run, and one walk, but his team managed only one run in the bottom of the 9th as the Mets lost to the Cardinals 2-1 on June 13. In Harvey’s last 10 starts, the Mets have scored only 18 runs while he’s been in the game.
Danny Green: Danny Green set a Spurs finals record through the first three games of the NBA Finals by hitting 16 three point shots. During games 2-4 which occurred this week, Green hit 15 of 19 three point shots. That’s a staggering 78.9%. If you’re an ESPN Insider, read this article arguing after game three that Green could easily be the leader for NBA Finals MVP. With the series knotted 2-2, the final three games will be heated, but there’s no question that Danny Green is making Carolina fans proud.
Gio Bernard: The Cincinnati Bengals rookie bragged on the Carolina baseball victory by Tweeting at former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore when the Tar Heels beat the Gamecocks.
Carolina football opens at South Carolina in a Thursday night game, and as you can see, Bernard is confident in a prediction of another victory for the Tar Heels.
