Final Four Tale: 1 North Carolina Vs. 3 Oregon
The Winner Is
The Tar Heels have a slight edge on offense and a distinct edge in depth, which points to a solid victory over the Ducks. However, there’s something about Oregon that is defying logic right now. The Ducks shut down a comparable offense machine from Kansas to get here, so the question is if they can do it again against UNC. If Oregon got to the Final Four on adrenaline and emotion, in addition its prodigious talent, those are big intangibles to go up against on national television under pressure. The Tar Heels are on a mission, though, to avenge their loss in the title game last season. Look for UNC to escape — barely — against the Ducks, 85-82, in overtime.
