When the Tar Heels and the Fighting Irish get together it’s always a classic! These two teams have been frequent of late March both making nice runs in the tournament over the past few years, including UNC winning it all last year. North Carolina looks a lot different this year after graduating a lot of talent last year, meanwhile, ND comes limping into this one after their best player, Bonzie Collins, suffered an injury about a week ago.
The #20 North Carolina Tar Heels (13-4) are lead by the former walk-on and National Title Game hero Luke Maye. Maye who is still only a junior leads the Tar Heels with 18.6 points per game and 10.8 rebounds. North Carolina doesn’t have nearly as much talent as they did last year when they won the National Title, but they do have enough veteran leaders where they should still make some noise come tourney time! Between Maye and senior guard Joel Berry II the Tar Heels should breeze past the Bonzie-less Irish.
Notre Dame(13-4) has had a roller coaster of a season with highs like beating #6 Wichita St. and Syracuse but then having losses to Michigan St. and Ball St. The biggest loss comes in Bonzie Collins who is out indefinitely with a foot injury. This loss is s huge because Bonzie is not only the teams leader in Points, Rebounds, Steals, and Blocks but he is their emotional leader as well. Without Bonzie Notre Dame has been searching for a new centerpiece to their offense. They will look to Senior guard Matt Farrell, who is second on the team with 15.9 ppg and leads the Irish with over 5 assists per game, to make up for the scoring loss of Bonzie.
