Texas A&M uses Carolina-style inside game to advance

North Carolinas Joel Berry II drives against Lipscombs Michael Buckland on Friday in Charlotte

North Carolinas Joel Berry II drives against Lipscombs Michael Buckland on Friday in Charlotte

Through all that, Friday was the moment that Williams had been yearning for the most.

North Carolina defends the interior well, so this matchup should work very well for them.

Texas A&M poses a potentially hard matchup for the No. 2-seed Tar Heels, given its size and experience in the post. - Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy, after Aggies forward Robert Williams said he thought about doing that during a dunk late in the game.

"It's a big time game", Pinson said.

Given Williams' desire to play through his big men, Manley might have scored some points with his coach.

Davis and Williams combined for 27 points and 19 rebounds in Friday's first-round 73-69 victory against Providence.

"Building confidence and understanding that I have a gift and I could put pressure on the defense, especially playing at the 4 position", noted Pinson "I'm the trailing big so it gives me a little more room to operate and make plays for my teammates and myself".

"When we were watching, the next thing you see was him rising out of nowhere and windmilling it", senior guard Joel Berry said.

STILL BUZZING: UMBC's historic upset of No. 1 overall seed Virginia a night earlier still reverberated around the Charlotte arena Saturday and was a frequent topic of conversation for the four teams still alive Saturday in the West and South brackets.

Manchester United's European exit 'nothing new' for Mourinho
Soon after, he surfaced at Chelsea , called himself The Special One and duly lived up to that self-proclamation. But Mourinho's declaration that he does not have regrets betrays a man who will not change.

Through teary eyes and hushed tones, the explanations didn't seem to make any more sense of a game that saw the seventh-place finisher in the SEC manhandle the Tar Heels for 31 minutes, leading by as many as 24 points.

That sounds easy enough. They used their size to control the paint and block shots. He knows the potential of every player on this team. It's going to be tough to guard them.

He's not the only one, though. Meanwhile, the Aggies - who peaked at No. 5 in the AP Top 25 in December - are moving on to the Sweet 16 for the second time in three seasons.

Manley's 10 rebounds were the highest total he's posted since the second game of the season, while he has flashed the ability to score with four double-figure games. Brooks contributed seven, grabbed a rebound and dished three assists.

North Carolina also got to Lipscomb's high-powered offense and really made them struggle in the second half. "It's a go-by-the-seat-of-the-pants kind of thing". "You win or go home, bottom line".

That not something either either Davis or Williams is looking forward to.

"I feel like we always have the advantage on the inside, but their bigs are really talented", Davis said. It wasn't supposed to end this way for Carolina, and Williams is going to miss those rascals.

It wasn't the prettiest game from start to finish for head coach Roy Williams and company, but they did what they needed to do.

Plain and simple, UNC wasn't able to pick up key rebounds throughout the game. "Just keep attacking the boards". "Those guys may be more gifted athletically".
