North Carolina Wins Shootout With Long Island

There were a lot of offensive fireworks for both teams this evening in Charlotte in this matchup between the 2 and 15 seeds in the East region and it was the North Carolina Tar Heels, led by a trio of terrific nights from Tyler Zeller (32-9), John Henson (28-12) and Harrison Barnes (24-15) as they held off a hard fighting Long Island club by a 102-87 score. The Tar Heels let the Blackbirds stick around thanks to a bunch of turnovers but their tremendous size was too much for LIU to handle. UNC will now take on the winner of Washington-Georgia on Sunday for the right to advance to Prudential Center in Newark and the Sweet Sixteen (round 3 television schedule).
Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg recap the game.
