UNC has just reloaded. The game outcome will be the same as it has been in recent years. Ohio St. cannot beat Carolina any more than it's football team can defeat an SEC team.

Ohio State can and will beat Carolina... and next year they will be football National Champions... beating an SEC team in the title game (LSU or Tennessee)...

Should be a good game...I'm a Heels fan...and I can tell you right now the Heels are not the #6 team in the country...and they're not playing very well right now...it's an upset if the Heels win in my opinion.

Go Heels.

UNC has reloaded to an extent, b/c obviously they recruit very well. However, their point guard play doesn't look too outstanding. You certainly don't have Ty Lawson anymore. The Buckeyes are going to win, and it won't be an upset b/c UNC is overrated, tricking the pollsters w/ tradition.

Yep ..North Carolina is a very Big Team ( Size wise ) + they always have experience and Coach Matta has been hampered by the NCAA violations of the previous basketball coach with only 11 basketball scholarships . Just think if Coach Matta had a full compliment of 13 scholarship players ..Go Bucks beat the Tar Heels of North Carolina .

For the record, OSU does have 13 scholarship players. Maybe they only had 11 for Matta's first or 2nd year, but that didn't stop him from winning 20 games. Matta wins 20+ like clock-work.

Just a correction from the article: Ed Davis logged more than four minutes in the championship game last year, not Marcus Ginyard.

Go Heels!

Another over-hyped basketball team flops on the big stage.A veteran team gets out-played by UNC's freshmen team.Turnover Turner showed up tonight to prove why he wasn't conference player of the year.

The Buckeyes don't deserve a big stage. They played pathetic basketball Thursday night. It was the return of the Sienna-loser Bucks.

How are they overhyped? They're picked 3rd in their own conference. They shot terribly vs. UNC, and the refs certainly seemed to favor UNC. However, OSU didn't play well enough to win. You can't shoot under 30% from the floor and win. They may have barely gotten over 30% after their run at the end, but for 34 min, they were at 27%. OSU would be UNC 7 out of 10 times, b/c OSU doesn't usually shoot that poorly... Look at what Syracuse did the following night, and Syracuse is no better than OSU. All of those teams are fairly close, but OSU has the best shot of making noise in the tournament. UNC will finish 3rd or 4th this year in the ACC.
