Wanted to touch on this point last night re: giving up offensive rebounds

Yes, we didn't box out well. Yes, we struggled to get to the loose balls. However, the balls bounced directly to UNC players just about EVERY SINGLE TIME. A lot of those rebounds were gifted from awful shots hitting the back of the rim then bouncing 17 feet backwards. We do need to do a better job sealing the paint to put ourselves in better positioning, but man, I have NEVER seen a team have every bounce go their way like that. I even recall one sequence where we had 4 guys in the paint or close to it, and the ball bounced back to the ONE UNC player at the foul line. It was truly infuriating. UNC is a consistently great offensive rebounding team, and we definitely didn't have our best night on that front, but I do think about half of those were anomalies
