Lorenzo Romar: Can He Lead Washington to an Upset Over North Carolina?
Lorenzo Romar and the Washington Huskies Are One Half Away From the Sweet 16
North Carolina was a team that everyone was high on heading into the NCAA tournament.
Lorenzo Romar's Washington Huskies are just a half of basketball away from shattering those expectations along with millions of brackets around the country. Romar and the Huskies took a one-point lead into halftime, led by the great play of Terrence Ross off of the bench.
Ross poured in 12 points in the first half on 4-5 shooting and 2-3 from beyond the arc.
So far, Isaiah Thomas, Washington's star player, has struggled, going 2-8 in the first half, scoring only four points. The Huskies are going to need him to step up big in the second half if they want to have any chance of walking away with the huge upset victory.
Also key to a victory will be the defense Washington plays on Harrison Barnes, North Carolina's star freshman talent. Barnes has torched the Huskies for 14 points on 6-8 shooting and if they don't slow him down soon, he's going to carry the Tar Heels to a huge victory.
It's going to be a compelling final half of basketball, but I love the Huskies and their chances of making it to the Sweet 16. If Thomas gets hot, he's going to be able to carry his team through to the next round and send Roy Williams home with a disappointing finish to his season.
March Madness has given us many thrilling moments, and this game is certainly shaping up to give us another thrilling finish. This is what the NCAA Tournament is all about, so if you can find a way to watch this game, do so as soon as possible.
