Their three wins have in the NCAA Tournament have been by a combined 13 total points. UNC has won all three of its tournament games by at least 15 points, including a 101-86 win over Indiana. The Heels are rolling right now and don’t appear to be stopping today. Despite losing to Notre Dame earlier in the season, UNC is a much different team and that showed in their 31-point win a few weeks ago. The Heels had a 46-26 rebounding edge in that win and the Irish won’t have an answer for UNC’s inside game today. Look for the Heels to continue their dominant roll.
