NEWARK, N.J. -- Trailing by three points with five minutes to go this past Sunday, North Carolina shooting guard Dexter Strickland said he felt no jitters, even with a trip to the NCAA East Regional semifinals on the line.
"We felt like we had been in that situation before, and we knew what we had to do to win," the sophomore said after his team made key defensive plays, and he made two free throws, down the stretch to beat Washington 86-83. "I think we just believed in one another and got the job done."
