East Region: Washington Huskies (7) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (2) Sun. March 20, 2011 12:15 p.m. EST

The Washington Huskies (7) came into the 2011 NCAA Tournament with high hopes of being able to do some damage in the East Region as they were coming off an impressive win that crowned them the Pac-10 champions. Even though many people haven’t expected much from the Huskies, they did a fairly good job of knocking out the Georgia Bulldogs in the second round with a score of 68-65.

Now Washington Huskies (7) will face what could be their toughest challenge in the 2011 NCAA Tournament as they are set to face off against Roy Williams’ North Carolina Tar Heels (2) for an opportunity to advance to the Sweet Sixteen in Newark, New Jersey.

Along with taking on a very good Tar Heels squad, the Huskies could be in for yet another tough challenge if they advance as they could face one of the best teams in the Big East in the Syracuse Orangemen (3). In the meantime, they will be putting all their focus into containing the Tar Heels.

As of right now, the North Carolina Tar Heels (2) have been favored to come out on top in this third round showdown with a -4 point spread. This is just about right in my opinion as I believe the Huskies will give them a run, but won’t be able to get the win.
