NCAA Tournament Game Thread: North Carolina-FGCU

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

NCAA Tournament 1st Round: #1 North Carolina vs #16 Florida Gulf Coast
Announcers: Kevin Harlan, Dan Bonner and Reggie Miller
Line: UNC -21.5; KenPom: UNC 85-65

In the NCAA Tournament under Roy Williams, UNC has beaten #16 seeds by an average of 30 points. Much of that is being driven by the 2008 and 2009 teams which won by 39 and 43 respectively. The 2005 team beat Oakland by 28, 2007 won over Eastern Kentucky by 21 and the 2012 squad took care of Vermont by 19. KenPom is calling it UNC by 20 which feels about right.

If UNC wins, Tar Heels get whoever survives between USC and Providence which follows this game.
