Before matching up with Ohio State, I predict North Carolina to come out victorious in a slug-fest with the Kansas Jayhawks in the Elite Eight en route to a Final Four game with the Buckeyes.
North Carolina was pegged as the preseason favorite to win the NCAA title come March Madness. Head coach Roy Williams certainly hasn't disappointed, and he has his team in a great position to advance to the championship game.
The Tar Heels will match up against the Ohio State Buckeyes in what is sure to be a close game. UNC should feel good about their chances though, as they can match up across the board with Ohio State.
Down low, the UNC front line of Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller has more than enough firepower to compete with the Ohio State front line of William Buford, Deshaun Thomas and Jared Sullinger. It's going to be a battle down low, all game.
On the perimeter, Ohio State has Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., and UNC has Kendall Marshall and Reggie Bullock. Both teams have great point guards and capable shooting guards.
In my opinion, North Carolina has the frontcourt advantage, easily. The backcourt is a little closer, but Kendall Marshall is the best point guard in the nation, so the Heels get the edge here.
