The Elite 8 continues on Sunday with two more games. One of those games is a SEC/ACC showdown between the Kentucky Wildcats and the North Carolina Tar Heels.
This should be one of the best college basketball games of the year. There is so much talent on both teams, and they can both put up a lot of points in a hurry.
The Kentucky Wildcats seem to be playing their best basketball of the season at the right time. They come into this game having won 14 games in a row. Their last loss was February 4th against the Florida Gators.
After having some trouble against the Wichita State Shockers in the round of 32 the Kentucky Wildcats looked ready to play in their game against the UCLA Bruins.
In their last meeting against UCLA the Wildcats lost 97-92, but the team that played in March looked much different. They were a lot more confident and really locked down on the defensive side of the floor.
They were led in the game by De’Aaron Fox who poured in 39 points on the way to a 86-75 win over the Bruins. To win this game the Wildcats need to lock down on the defensive side of the floor again. They want this game to be played in the 70’s rather then the 80’s or 90’s.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels have made the Elite 8 for the second year in a row. They have had a great season and once again seem to be clicking on all cylinders once again.
After having a little problem with Arkansas in the Round of 32 the Tar Heels came out motivated and energized in their Sweet 16 game against Butler and led 52-36 at the half. Although they let Butler get back into the game a bit in the second half, they still won 92-80.
Justin Jackson and Joel Berry were the leaders of the Tar Heels. They combined for 40 points and five three pointers made.
For the Tar Heels to win this game it’s all going to come down to the defensive end. They really need to lock it down on that side of the ball and make life really difficult.
