North Carolina Tar Heels
North Carolina has been quiet lately and that’s just fine for Roy Williams’ team. The Heels bounced back after their loss to Michigan State with wins over Michigan and Davidson and they’ve had cupcakes ever since.
UNC got beat pretty bad against Sparty and some might look at the box score and just think North Carolina had a bad night. MSU has done that to about the last six teams its played, though. If you did watch the game, it wasn’t so much North Carolina playing badly as Michigan State giving it no other choice. Now, the Spartans are probably the best team in the country but it just goes to show you how big the gap is between the title favorites and North Carolina — bigger than Tar Heels fans are used to.
It’s why this game is a coin flip. North Carolina has a nice team but its more like a top-15 team versus one that’s top-five. It makes me wonder, does Luke Maye averaging 20 say more about Carolina’s lack of weapons or his personal development? Most people have assumed its the latter but I’m not convinced of that.
I need to watch a little more Tennessee that what I’ve seen to now; but I have it on good record that the Vols can ball. They beat Purdue, played Villanova tough and beat NC State. A win at Georgia Tech (no. 91 in KenPom) isn’t bad, either.
Seven guys get 20+ minutes per game (six of them literally play between 20.5 and 23.4 mpg), including a kid named Admiral Schofield, who scores a dozen on nearly 45 percent from three.
Rick Barnes was 1–4 against Roy Williams when they were both in the Big-12 but he’s 6–1 against him since he went to Texas. KenPom has North Carolina four points better.
