UNC vs Texas A&M: Game preview, info, prediction and more

Texas A&M's Admon Gilder reacts to making a 3-pointer against North Carolina during Sunday's second round game in the NCAA Tournament in Charlotte, N.C.

Berry's 13-point afternoon gave him 1,792 points in four years and moved him past Michael Jordan, a two-time first-team All-American at UNC and the 1984 ACC player of the year. The Tar Heels were not flawless with 18 turnovers which kept the game closer then it should have been.

"I was so excited this week to play this game", Williams said. Shot it better, rebounded it better. 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.

"They're big guys", Williams said, "and their perimeter guys have a lot of size". The Tar Heels normally get two who play consistent minutes. Once we got over that hump, we were all right from there. Can the Aggies find a way to slow down the Tar Heels?

"It's one of the worst performances we've had from the three", Maye said.

"The friend, the teammate, the father that he is today is a very different person than the one that first met with me when he left Kansas State".

Six-foot-8 forward Luke Maye and 6-6 wing Theo Pinson did their best to stay in front of their bigger opponents and deny entry passes into low post.

She added that Stormi hasn't laughed yet but is smiling a lot at the moment, and she can't get over her baby's "little toes". She also revealed that Stormi and Chicago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye's West's newborn daughter, are already besties .

Joel Berry II is coming through.

The Aggies snuffed that out for good when Tonny Trocho-Morelos blocked Pinson's acrobatic layup and Robert Williams finished the play on the other end with a windmill dunk that took every bit of sound out of the Spectrum Center. Luther played in 10 games this year before suffering a season-ending injury and had planned to return for a fifth year at Pitt. They were highly recruited and the Aggies were a top-10 team earlier this season. I think, if you don't have jitters, you're not human.

And yet, the reigning national champions will be challenged to rely on a traditional strength in a second-round game Sunday against Texas A&M in the NCAA Tournament's West Region.

North Carolina coach Roy Williams talks with Sterling Manley during the second half against Lipscomb in Charlotte on Friday. They dominated the glass. "And as you saw, once we got going, we got going". And they pounced when UNC's small-ball lineup couldn't make an outside shot.

Their normal 20-point shooter, Garrison Matthews shot 3 for 14 from the field and was held to 8 points.

"I knew we would be a real good rebounding team, because if they didn't rebound and didn't box out, they weren't going to play", Williams said Saturday. Tyler Davis (18 points, nine rebounds) got loose for three baskets inside as the Aggies asserted themselves in the paint, while UNC started missing shot after shot. And they were playing for only their third trip to the Sweet 16 since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.
