North Carolina Tar Heels 72, Arkansas Razorbacks 65: Nothing GivenBy Darlene Powers Mar 21, 2017
In the second half, Carolina was a mess offensively, and was unable to do the things it has done well all season, leading to the Razorbacks eventually taking a one-point lead with 13:04 remaining. Arkansas was stifled on the offensive end, missing its last four shots, all 3-point attempts. Berry then shuffled his feet twice and casually threw the ball up at the top of the backboard as if he was expecting a call from the referees.
Arkansas lost to North Carolina 72-65 on Sunday evening in Greenville, South Carolina ending the season at 26-10, falling just short of making the Sweet 16.
Carolina had a chance to put Arkansas away in the first half.
The all-Tar Heel NBA team wouldn't be complete without Vince Carter coming off the bench to throw down some highlight-reel dunks. The Razorbacks rallied thereon, closing within five points by halftime.
Pitching for the third straight day out of the bullpen, senior Zac Ryan (2-1) was unfortunate to pick up the loss, as the Tar Heels scored four unearned runs on three Tech errors over the final two innings of the contest. From there Hicks corralled the rebound and finished the game out on the free throw line. But after that UNC went on a 10-0 run over the next 3 minutes and 33 seconds. Forward Adrio Bailey collected three steals in harassing the Heels.
During a weekend that saw defending champion Villanova and hated rival Louisville fall in the second round, Kentucky is glad to be moving on from Wichita State. Going forward, the Tar Heels need to put forth the same effort-in crunch time, UNC will need to make the necessary plays to survive and advance. Macon and Beard also had to go out in the second half when both were playing well.
A plan that will worsen health care
Native American tribes are wondering what will happen to their health care if proposed changes to Obamacare by Republicans go through.
He had also spoken recently with coach Roy Williams to remain confident and stick with what helped him to a big year. He struggled at points against Arkansas. The lefty gave up just two hits, walked one and struck out a career-high eight hitters in the no-decision. The team logged 10 turnovers in a March 10 loss to Duke, 14 in a February 27 setback at Virginia, 14 in a one-sided defeat at Miami on January 28, 20 in a December 31 upset at Georgia Tech, and 12 in a nine-point loss at in on November 30.
The win came on a night in which UNC committed 17 turnovers, squandered a 17-point lead and got a combined 7 for 27 shooting performance from stars Justin Jackson and Joel Berry.
Narrowly avoiding upset, the No. 2 seed Wildcats were able to outlast the Shockers for a gutsy 65-62 win as they advanced to the Sweet 16 in Memphis.
As a member of the Dallas Mavericks this year, Barnes (who won an Olympic gold medal as the 14th man on the Team USA roster last summer in Rio) is averaging 19.8 points and 5.2 rebounds. The cheers for the Razorbacks grew even louder once the Duke and SC fans started filing into the arena.
In a rematch of a memorable 2014 NCAA Tournament second-round matchup that saw No. 1 seed Wichita State's unbeaten season end at the hands Kentucky, this matchup almost lived up to the enormous hype of that first game. Devonte' Graham added 18 points and Landen Lucas had 10 for the Jayhawks, who shot 53.1 percent (34 of 64) in the win.
