Stanford shows a ‘lack of intensity’ in loss at No. 7 North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Stanford couldn’t keep pace Monday in a 90-72 loss to No. 7 North Carolina. Head coach Jerod Haase thinks he knows why.
“I told the guys, I’m not worried about mistakes,” Haase said. “What I am worried about is any lack of intensity. You could see that in the pace of their cuts. You could see that in how they get open. … You can see that when they hit the paint and they’re not looking for a teammate. So I would say I could sense that early.”
UNC’s Kenny Williams scored 12 points after starting the season by missing his first 10 shots, and the Tar Heels dominated the first half.
It was a rough start for the Cardinal (2-1), enough so that Haase burned a timeout after barely 2½ minutes.
