Washington-North Carolina thread

It’s tournament time in the city. Ring-a-ling. Hear them ring. Soon it will be the Final Four…

A trip to the Sweet Sixteen is on the line when the Pac 10 meets the  Atlantic Coast Conference in Charlotte.

The Pac-10 tournament champion Washington Huskies (24-10, 11-7/3rd Pac-10) play the Atlantic Coast Conference’s regular season champion North Carolina Tar Heels (27-7, 14-2/1st ACC) this Sunday at 9:15 a.m. PT in Charlotte, N.C.’s Time Warner Cable Arena (20,200). The 23rd-ranked Huskies earned a date with the No. 7 ranked
and second-seeded Tar Heels in the East Regional round of 32 by beating Georgia 68-65 on Friday. Washington is trying to make its fourth Sweet 16 appearance under coach Lorenzo Romar and the team’s sixth overall Regional
Semifinal since 1984. UW is 8-5 under Romar — who is in his 9thyear leading the Dawgs — in the tournament, and can make back-to-back Sweet 16 appearance for just the second time in team history.

Carolina is 28-1 in NCAA Tournament games played in the state of North Carolina. That includes a 10-0 record in Charlotte, 5-0 in Greensboro, 7-1 in Raleigh and 6-0 in Winston-Salem. Carolina has won 24 consecutive NCAA
Tournament games in the state of North Carolina, last losing on March 11, 1979, to Penn in Raleigh. Six of the last seven times that UNC’s NCAA tournament road has included a stop in the state of North Carolina, the Tar Heels have advanced to at least the Final Four (2009, 2008, 2005, 1998, 1997, 1993). The exception was in 2007, when Carolina played in Winston-Salem but lost in the Elite Eight to Georgetown. Carolina’s last four national championship runs have started with first-round games in North Carolina (2009 in Greensboro, 2005 in
Charlotte, 1993 in Winston-Salem and 1982 in Charlotte).
