As far as North Carolina's chances—well—they aren't so high. It is the third-most likely team to end up in the championship, behind Duke and Miami, at 27.25 percent.
So I'm telling you there's a chance. Just not much of one.
This team has the talent. But does it have the the fortitude and the ability to learn from mistakes and adapt?
This is a jump-shooting team, and I've seen few signs of that stigma going away. That is why this team is so streaky this season.
If the players aren't burying threes, they aren't winning. But that also means they are capable of putting together a hot streak that lasts through the weekend, and ends with them cutting down the nets.
More than likely, that would mean going through Duke and Miami. The Tar Heels haven't defeated either team this season.
According to TeamRankings.com, they have just a 14.2 percent chance of winning the title. As unlikely as it may be, few conferences can match the wackadoo nature of the ACC this season.
Anything can happen. And if you don't believe that, you haven't watched enough games.
Roy Williams has only brought home two ACC tournament titles over his nine complete seasons. However, neither has come with a national championship team—and this one falls under that category.
Many would agree his lack of success has been his lack of enthusiasm for the "cocktail party." He doesn't appear to push them in the ACC tourney unless they have something to prove.
In 2007, the Tar Heels had that. They were 11-5 in the ACC, and had lost four of their last nine games before the tourney. They came away with the title, and would later advance to the Elite Eight in the NCAA tournament.
So is it likely that Carolina could come away with another banner for their rafters? No.
Is it possible? Absolutely.
