The opening day of second-round March Madness action didn't lack for drama, but there were still plenty of blowouts. Not all of them were as one-sided as they looked—BYU, for one, made a couple of impressive runs at Marquette before falling by 20—but this tournament has already seen its share of lopsided margins.
One of the likeliest teams to face a similar fate in today’s action is Vermont, the 16th seed charged with the unenviable task of taking on North Carolina.
Not all No. 16s are completely out of their depth—witness UNC-Asheville’s valiant effort against Syracuse yesterday—but the Catamounts just don’t have the scorers to keep up with the high-powered Tar Heel offense.
Read on for a closer look at North Carolina and seven more teams set to cruise in today’s NCAA tournament action.
