East Region: North Carolina Tar Heels (2) vs. Long Island Blackbirds (15) Fri. March 18, 2011 7:15 p.m. EST

A couple of years ago, the North Carolina Tar Heels (2) were on top of the world once again as they were able to win their first National Championship with head coach Roy Williams at the helm. Not only were the Tar Heels able to get past all the very talented teams in the NCAA Tournament that year to win another NCAA title, but the majority of their talented players decided to make the jump to the NBA.

With the team depleted by players heading to the NBA, the Tar Heels were a shell of their former squad and had officially lost their championship form. Even though they were unable to defend their NCAA title by failing to make the NCAA Tournament just one year after winning it all, UNC did go on to win the NIT.

Obviously, an NIT title is nothing in comparison to an NCAA title, but it did show that may be Roy Williams had gotten control of this team once again. This season the Tar Heels have been able to get back into the title contender conversation as they enter the 2011 NCAA Tournament as the second seed in the East Region.

Even though it will be no easy task to get back to the Final Four, the North Carolina Tar Heels are confident that they can advance to the next round with a win over the Long Island Blackbirds (15) right out of the gate.
