No. 8 UNC lost a tough one last night against Virginia, faltering down the stretch against the fourth-ranked Cavaliers. However, thanks to Michael Jordan, one fan had a moment she’ll never forget.
Jordan was back at his alma mater last night to watch the game. His entrance into the Dean Dome was captured by ESPN cameras and drew a predictable raucous ovation from the home crowd.
One woman who was sitting courtside got pretty damn close to His Airness. The look on her face said it all.
We’re not sure who she is, but we can tell she was excited.

Jordan is bound to get that reaction wherever he goes. Doesn’t matter if it is UNC, an NBA arena or a local grocery store.
As for the game itself, UNC missed a chance to rise in the national rankings and remain in a first-place tie with Duke atop the ACC. Currently, the Blue Devils are all alone in first in the conference heading into tonight’s game at No. 16 Louisville.
Duke-UNC Round One is set for a week from tomorrow in Durham. The second matchup will be Saturday, March 9 in Chapel Hill
