Both of these teams look tournament worthy but not exactly championship threats. Even the defending champs.
Of the two it is Louisville that could use a little more juice on their resume and win in this one would help.
North Carolina Tar Heels
After a three game losing streak the Tar Heels have now won four in a row. They look better but still not great.
It is hard to look great when everyone expects your best player to turn back into a pumpkin – Luke Maye.
The Tar Heels are at their best when he is probably their third best player and Joel Berry is playing like one of the top guards in America.
Maye keeps proving himself but few teams have the kind of length inside that Louisville does. It will be a challenge.
The Cardinals also had a recent three-game losing streak but they have snapped it and won two straight.
I like the way this group plays defense but on offense, they are very reliant on their backcourt.
Deng Adel has taken a step but they were hoping for more of a leap. He scores 15ppg but he could be more dominant.
The opposite is true of point guard Quentin Snider. He maximizes his talent but he has been inconsistent this season.

- Free North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Louisville Cardinals NCAAB Prediction:
It makes sense that Louisville is the favourite at home. They are more than good enough to win.
I am not much of a Roy Williams guy but this could be a spot where his bench experience matters.

I am going with the home team. They will may out their starters and get a nice victory.
