The top-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels lived up to their number one status in their first round and now will get set to prepare to lock horns against the eighth-seeded Arkansas Razorbacks in a South Region second round showdown set to be staged on Sunday at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina.
The Razorbacks will attempt to reach the sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1996 but it will be against a team that is firing on all cylinders as the Tar Heels proved in their 103-64 shellacking of the Texas Southern Tigers on Friday. The Tar Heels had nine players logging in 15 minutes or more in the game while six players scored in double-digits in the rout.
It certainly helps to use your bench when you hold a 25-point halftime lead but it delivered by scoring 46 points in relief. North Carolina easily covered the spread and even had room to spare in the 39-point win. The Razorbacks recovered from a SEC Championship Tournament loss to Kentucky by edging Seton Hall 77-71 in their first round action.
Arkansas’ defense is by far its weakest link and against the Tar Heels’ offensive firepower and top-ranked rebound status in the nation, makes for a lethal combination. The Razorbacks can hold their own offensively but with the Tar Heels’ rebound superiority and their fast pace, this game could turn in into another rout. Tar Heels in double-digits.
