No, we're very good at defending without fouling

The defense really hasn't been the issue in the postseason, and fouling too much definitely has not been an issue, so even if their theory had some truth, it's not what's hurting us.

UNC and NC State fans think this because they always have the free flowing kinds of offenses, and our defense doesn't let it flow. To them, that means we must be fouling them, but it is really just good defense.

This seems like another new narrative that has zero basis in any fact at all. Put it in the group with "our pace of play makes it more likely we'll be upset." Sounds like it could be true, but if you look at it at all you know it isn't.
