Default The match-up of UNC and Washington State will be an interesting one

UNC outscored their opponents 35 ppg in the last two games while Washington State managed to win 25.5 ppg against their 1st and 2nd round opponents. This has made it the most exciting No.1 to No.4 match-up in 10 years and besides, both of the teams must have gotten plenty of rest in their overwhelming victory. The match-up will be a huge one, should be a close game but UNC has a chance to pull the game away if Washington State can't keep pace. Any thoughts?

As a Tarheel fan I am very concerned with Wash U mainly because the total contrast in styles. Wash U has been able to win with those huge margins becaues they've held both of their opponents to under 50 points. That statistic is astounding. NC will not be scoring anywhere near 100 points. Wash U's style will definitely give them trouble. But overall they're playing in Charlotte and I'm sure the NC coaches and players are on top of scouting out Wash U . . . so I'm not that concerned?

Washington State has the best defense around. Kyle Weaver will shut down the top perimeter scorer for UNC, it comes down to who will play their style of basketball and who will impose their will on the other team.

Washington State has lots of three point shooters. If they get hot, North Carolina could lose. Given how talented Lawson and Ellington are defensively, I wouldn't expect the Washington State guys to get hot. I suspect NC will beat them by a large margin.
