UNC Dominates Gonzaga Bulldogs

Wes MillerCorrespondent IMarch 28, 2009

Lawson scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half, as the top-seeded Tar Heels routed Gonzaga 98-77 in the South Regional on Friday night. They'll play second-seeded Oklahoma on Sunday for a berth in the Final Four.


Tyler Hansbrough added 24 points and 10 rebounds for North Carolina, which won its 99th NCAA tournament game, breaking a tie with Kentucky for the most by any college.


Wayne Ellington scored 19 points and Danny Green added 13 for the Tar Heels (31-4), who reached the regional finals for the third straight year. There was no jumping for joy afterward for this team—after losing to Kansas in the national semifinals last year, there was still work to do.

 

UNC will have to play Oklahoma in a big game where NBA scouts will be drooling with Blake Griffin, Willie Warren, Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Danny Green, and Wayne Ellington. It could very well help them or hurt them going into draft day.

 

UNC will go for win 100 on sunday CBS Sports.
