NCAA West Regional Semifinal: #4 UNC vs #1 Wisconsin, 7:47 PM, TBS

Kennedy Meeks remains a game time decision with some news on that probably coming after he warms up providing there were no complications after yesterday's practice.

If you are looking for numerical history, UNC is 2-0 versus Wisconsin and 1-0 in the NCAA Tournament with the lone win being in the 2005 Elite Eight. Roy Williams is also 2-0 against Wisconsin and 6-0 in the Sweet Sixteen during his UNC tenure. A win here would be Roy Williams' seventh trip to the Elite Eight in 12 seasons.

Speaking for myself I have placed myself in a mindset of low expectations. If the season ends tonight, I am not sure I will be terrible upset. Of course part of being okay with a Sweet Sixteen loss now is based on everyone returning and UNC making a run in 2016. A win would be great but a loss against a team that has been near the top of college basketball all season isn't anything to be ashamed of either. That is unless it comes in heartbreaking fashion.

Comments if you have 'em.
