The Tar Heels boast more than 50 NCAA berths in program history, and six championships, most recently in 2017. Hubert Davis led the team to become ACC Regular Season Champs, and now he looks to claim the national title that escaped his grasp in 2022.

UNC beat the No. 9 Michigan State Spartans 85-69 in Round 2 thanks to a 20-point effort from RJ Davis. Armando Bacot added another 18, plus 7 rebounds and 3 assists for the win. Alabama beat No. 12 Grand Canyon 72-61 on Sunday, with Mark Sears pacing the team with 26 points. These teams are tied 1-1 against each other, with Alabama winning 103-101 at their last meeting in 2022, which went to quadruple overtime.

Since a disappointing Selection Sunday for the Big East, when all its bubble teams got left out of the NCAA field, the conference has not lost a game in the tournament.

Defending national champion UConn, Marquette and Creighton advanced to the Sweet 16, the Huskies rounding out a 6-0 weekend for the Big East with a 75-58 second-round victory over Northwestern on Sunday night.

Three NCAA bids for the Big East was its fewest since 1993, a surprising development because the league was generally considered among the best Division I conferences this season. Now it is the only multibid conference to get through the first week of the tournament without losing a game.

“When you’re on the bubble, it’s precarious when these things happen. But, yes, I think the teams that are left are finding a way to send a bit of a message here,” Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman said at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where UConn was playing. “That the Big East is one of the elite basketball conferences in the country.”

After an ugly performance by Virginia in the First Four, the Atlantic Coast Conference also asserted itself during the first weekend of the tournament after what was a viewed as a down regular season for the traditional basketball power conference.

The ACC has four teams in the Sweet 16, the most of any conference: Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Clemson advanced to the regional semifinals that start Thursday.

There are more teams from the 919 area code in North Carolina (three) left in the tournament than from either the Big 12 (two) or Southeastern Conference (two). Those conferences tied for the most bids with eight.

The Big Ten got two of its six teams through to the regional semifinals, including Midwest top seed Purdue. The West Coast Conference and Pac-12 each put one team in the Sweet 16.

The Mountain West had six teams in the field, but only San Diego State remains alive. The fifth-seeded Aztecs will face UConn in a rematch of last year’s championship game on Thursday in the East Region semifinal in Boston.

Ackerman said five bid-stealers, conference tournament winners that would not have gotten in the tournament otherwise, likely cost the Big East at least one more team in the field of 68 — Seton Hall was one of the committee’s first four out — and maybe more.

UConn coach Dan Hurley and Clemson coach Brad Brownell have both accused other conferences, notably the Big 12 and Mountain West, of gaming the NET rankings by playing weak out-of-conference schedules.

The Tar Heels were made to sweat early in the second half of their victory over the No. 9-seeded Michigan State Spartans, but they eventually fended off the opposition rally before pulling away comfortably in the second half.

Armando Bacot finished with 18 points and seven rebounds, while Harrison Ingram notched 17 points and seven boards. RJ Davis scored a team-high 20 points.

Guard Davis has now scored 20 or more points in four straight games, his longest streak since reeling off eight in a row earlier this season. Fellow veteran Bacot is averaging 17.8 points and 11 rebounds across the last five games. The Tar Heels' top duo will hold the key to set the tone here.

Alabama have one of the more underrated squads left in the tournament. They rank first in the country in scoring (90.7 PPG). They have cracked 90+ a whopping 12 times since Christmas.

If Crimson plan to play a more free-flowing game this Thursday, star guard Mark Sears needs to be the star of the show, having averaged 24.1 points and 4.1 rebounds while shooting 49.3 per cent over the past 10 games. Aaron Estrada, another key cog, averaging 13.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.7 steals for the Crimson Tide.
