    15 things that weren't supposed to happen, but did on a crazy college basketball Saturday
    This is when college basketball shines — when things shouldn’t happen, but do. Saturday had a batch of them, and as often, no better place to start than the ACC.
    That's the league with six teams rated in the top 15 of the Associated Press poll for the first time ever, and two different teams rated No. 1 at the same time — Duke with AP, Virginia with the coaches. Vote hogs.

    The rare headlines just keep on coming. And just look at Saturday.

    1. Roy Williams is not supposed to be blown away in his own Dean Dome. Louisville is not supposed to lose to picked-for-last Pittsburgh, and three days later charge into Chapel Hill and crush the Tar Heels by 21 points. North Carolina is not supposed to be averaging 94 points at home, and then struggle to get to 62 against the Cardinals.

    That all happened. It was the worst home loss in Williams’ Carolina career, and when asked later about any particular issues facing his team, he decided, “Basketball is a big concern right now.”
