The Tar Heels are being picked by many as the tourney favorites and they’ll look to start off on the right foot when they take on the Texas Southern Tigers on Friday.
Texas Southern Tigers
Texas Southern has won 9 straight games entering play on Friday and they have some experience against the top teams in the country.
The Tigers have already seen Arizona, Louisville, Cincinnati and Baylor which is actually going to be a huge help going into this one. However, just because they’ve seen these teams doesn’t mean they competed.
The Tigers lost each of those 4 games by 20 points or more.
Texas Southern are going to have to really lock down on the defensive end here against a team that is stronger and faster.
The Tigers rank 168th nationally in total defense, which is quite alarming.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels are going to enter Friday with quite a chip on their shoulder.
North Carolina comes in off a season last year where they were runners up, after Villanova hit a game winning 3 ball at the buzzer in the National Championship Game.
UNC has been one of the most consistent and impressive teams this year, but come in with some questions.
North Carolina fell to Duke in the ACC Semi Finals, but this is a perfect team to tuneup against in the tourney.
The Tigers defense is so poor, the Tar Heels should be able to find plenty of open shots and gain that momentum back they’ve used throughout this season.
