All streaks must end eventually and how this one did will become legend in the ACC.

If you’re like us and didn’t get to watch Clemson’s big win at UNC, we’d really like to recommend you watch this.

If you want, you can skip to the later part of the video and just watch Clemson’s comeback. There are some brilliant moments.

We’ve never seen Aamir Simms play like he does here. He’s phenomenal. His three pointers were clutch and as great as his offense was, check out his intense block towards the end. That was an amazing play. Note too rather than throw it out of bounds and give it back to the Heels, he kept it in play and took off to the other end.

Part of it was absolutely Carolina’s lack of heart but Clemson was prepared to seize the moment. That was as fine a stretch as we’ve ever seen a Clemson team play. And the best part is, like any heroic quest, they had to overcome adversity to earn their prize.

Any way you look at this video, assuming you’re not a disappointed Tar Heel fan, it’s just spectacular. This may be a down season for the ACC, but this will go down with ACC moments like Dudley Bradley’s steal at NC State, Michael Jordan’s block of Ralph Sampson, Gone in 54 Seconds and Randolph Childress waving to Jeff McInnis to get up as he’s about to nail a three.

This is destined to be legend.
