North Carolina vs. Arkansas - 3/19/17 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Tipoff for Arkansas vs. UNC on Sunday will be determined at the conclusion of the second round games on Friday night.

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Sindarius Thornwell had 29 points and 11 rebounds to help seventh-seeded SC win its first NCAA Tournament game in 44 years, a 93-73 victory over Marquette to close first-round play in the East Region on Friday night. Arkansas came into the1995 tournament as the defending champs and Nolan Richardson was thirsty for a repeat. The Razorbacks didn't play in the NCAA Tournament from 2009-2014 during John Pelphrey's last three seasons as coach and Anderson's first three seasons. Nolan Richardson and his Razorback team were thirsty for some sweet revenge.

The game was still tied at 50 as late as the 14-minute mark of the second half before Marcus Paige got hot from the perimeter to help the Tar Heels pull away.

Three seems to be the number for the Hogs and Heels.

That was the last time the Tigers would even get a sniff of the lead as North Carolina cruised to a 103-64 victory.

Mowgli overcame Shere Kahn by using the one thing that Kahn couldn't fight with his superior power and strength.

"And it's unbelievable how - they play for championships".

"I feel like we had good quality wins to host, but the committee probably thought differently", Spencer said. "They're very aggressive and play very hard on the defensive end". But a lot of them were not, or half and half, probably. "But I don't think they can handle us, we're too good".

Arkansas Spotlight: Mike Anderson's squad was one of the hottest in the country at the conclusion of the regular season.

Under the agreement, more than 12,000 people would leave in batches over the coming weeks, according to the Observatory.

Slow them down, and the Tar Heels could throw a wrench into the whole operation. I remember (Marcus) Paige taking over in the second half. "Whoever we're playing, we're ready for".

This will mark the third time in less than a decade that North Carolina and Arkansas meet in the tournament's second round. The Razorbacks were out skilled and lacked the fight to find a victory. They will blitz Arkansas offensively and should be up by double digits at halftime. It may not yet be burning as brightly but it's games like tomorrow vs UNC that feed the flames.

Prior to Johnson's game-winner in the 12th, each team went scoreless for over five innings thanks to some phenomenal work from the bullpen arms. The scoreboard operator might be busy on Sunday when the Tar Heels and Razorbacks clash in the Round of 32.

That assumption applies for Duke's second-round matchup with SC and Meeks' encounter with Kingsley. "I'm just going in preparing for the game like I'm playing, regardless of what happens".

The history and storyline of this game is one of a rising Arkansas team facing it's long time villain once again.

Arkansas will nearly certainly lose the battle of the boards.

Razorback basketball does appear to be on the rise, whether some fans want to admit it or not. He came out of the game but was able to return.

North Carolina looked to take the lead in the top of the ninth as Brandon Riley hit a deep fly ball to left center field where a leaping Peurifoy made the grab at the wall for the out.
