Aggies Headed To Sweet 16 After Dominating North Carolina

Texas A&M's Williams checked out not even four minutes into the game, but he wasn't ready to give up yet.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Reigning national champion North Carolina sputtered to the worst NCAA Tournament loss of Roy Williams' career on Sunday night, overpowered in its home state by Texas A&M, 86-65.

Carolina had no illusions about this A&M team.

Berry, who was last year's Most Outstanding Player in the Final Four, reached a notable mark during Friday's game. It's acceptable that a higher seed can get caught napping in the first game of the weekend, but nothing implied the Tar Heels would get obliterated the way they did on Sunday night.

Things spiraled further into the absurd as seventh-seeded Texas A&M used a first-half run to jump ahead of North Carolina and never took its foot off the pedal in a shocking 86-65 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Ninth-ranked North Carolina's objective is to stick with the process that works. They shot 13 3-pointers but only made one, shooting an abysmal 7.7 percent from three for the first half. North Carolina defeated Lipscomb 84-66, but couldn't quite cover the 22-point spread. Davis had 15 rebounds.

"He went and then got it on the glass".

"That's what we do", said Aggies forward Tyler Davis, also at 6-10. "That's what he's done all year". "We've been playing with each other all year".

The localization has also been reworked, so it's "the most faithful representation of the original Japanese", according to Sega. It'll be a while before we see Yakuza 7 surface, as we still have yet to get Yakuza 6 and Yakuza Kiwami 2 this year.

Shakib struck in his comeback after he made it to the team after sitting out of the previous matches due to to a finger injury. Carried away by the high intensity of the game , we have seen the very best of players fail to justify the saying.

Two men's college basketball blue bloods punched tickets to Omaha for the Sweet 16, and a third could do the same Sunday. He couldn't have dreamed up anything better than what popped into view: Svi Mykhailiuk alone, outside the 3-point line.

In what amounted to a road game, A&M proved unbowed by a crowd that was 80 percent pro-Carolina.

It came on the same court where, two nights earlier, UMBC made history by becoming the first 16-seed to beat a 1 when the Retrievers upset top overall seed Virginia. "That's when you want to be at your best, at the beginning of conference play". Not only are Brunson and Carter both All-Americans this season, but they're also former AAU teammates who are very familiar with each other's games.

They did just beat the defending national champs, after all. If that wasn't deflating enough for the Heels, D.J. Hogg collected the block and rifled a pass to Robert Williams, who was smiling as the ball was in the air.

Here are the grades following the Aggies' dominant win (hint, it's all good).

Texas A&M, meanwhile, appears to be rounding into form.

"People knew what was coming", Williams said. "I wanted to take it between my legs this time but [then] I saw Coach Kennedy".

When Joel Berry and Theo Pinson were watching tournament games on Thursday, Berry said he could see the gap closing between the teams near the top and the automatic qualifiers. Back-to-back title game appearances preceded the college sport's governing body's October decision not to sanction Carolina basketball for any academic violations. "Our problem was the beginning of SEC play when we had two guys with knee injuries [senior guard Duane Wilson, whose season ended against Kentucky in February and Gilder, who injured his knee against Savanah State in December]". It wasn't supposed to end this way for Carolina, and Williams is going to miss those rascals. "A lot of the lower seeds this year have guys on their teams that have been together three or four years and that's what happens, when you have guys that play with one another and have chemistry, and understand their programs and what it takes, that's what you get". I didn't like getting a piece of mail that was addressed to Mr.
