UNC a No. 1 seed in NCAA tournament

Bookmark and Share

North Carolina will begin play in the NCAA tournament on Friday as the top seed in the Midwest region. The Tar Heels will play either Lamar or Vermont on Friday at the Greensboro Coliseum.

If the Tar Heels advance, they would then play on Sunday against either Creighton, the No. 8 seed in the region, or Alabama, the No. 9 seed.
Kansas is the second-seeded team in the Midwest, which sets up the possibility that the Tar Heels and Jayhawks could play one another in the regional championship game in St. Louis. Georgetown is the No. 3 seed in the Midwest, and Michigan the No. 4 seed.

UNC #1 Seed

May face Kansas in St. Louis.  Bet the folks in Lawrence are esthatic about that!  

I dunno if they're 'esthatic'?

But even KU fans know they can't survive and advance that long. Syracuse is in the same boat.
