UNC fan sells Lehigh shirts at NCAA Tournament
GREENSBORO, N.C. — One man has turned Duke’s loss into a profit by selling Lehigh T-shirts in the Coliseum’s parking lot Sunday night.
Ashville resident Robert McCarson brought about 100 Lehigh T-shirts in UNC colors to the North Carolina/Creighton game for a $15 each.
McCarson said he thought this would be a great way to celebrate Carolina’s victory and stick it to the “Dukies.”
“I’m a huge Tar Heel fan and I hate duke,” he said.
Lehigh – the number 15 seed knocked out number 2 Duke Friday night in Greensboro.
McCarson said he may be one of the few Carolina fans who actually knows where the Pennsylvania school is.
McCarson said he sold a surprising number of shirts to real Lehigh fans, who say they do not mind being UNC fans’ new favorite team.
