The reigning national champion Tar Heels fell eight spots in theon Monday, and dropped 10 spots from fourth to 14th in the USA Today Coaches Poll as a result of the loss. Despite going 11-2 in non-conference play, the Tar Heels’ momentum has slowed considerably and they face a tough road ahead with six of their first ACC foes ranked inside KenPom’s top 100.
