North Carolina seems to be a team that many think can make some noise in this bracket, but we really aren’t so sure that it is even going to get out of the first round of this tournament. It was nice to see the Tar Heels on the precipice of the ACC Championship this year, but in the end, they beat a so-so Maryland team that didn’t get into the dance and a bad Florida State team that is a middling club in the NIT. The only real win this year of note came against UNLV, and though that’s an impressive win, it shouldn’t be the best victory a team like North Carolina has on its resume. In fact, the argument could be made that beating Villanova would be even more impressive. The Wildcats only went 20-13 this year, but a lot of these losses that have come down the stretch of the year have been tossup type of games against teams that are a lot better than the Tar Heels are. The athleticism here that Villanova brings to the table is stellar, and Head Coach Jay Wright has the right formula to counter this awfully small UNC outfit. This should be a great game. We want the points on our side, and we are calling for the Wildcats to advance, spoiling any notions of a Roy Williams vs. Kansas matchup in the second round.

Villanova vs. North Carolina Free Pick: Villanova +4
Villanova vs. North Carolina Predictions: Villanova 72 – North Carolina 70
