Sweet 16: Marquette (11) vs. UNC (2)

East Region: Marquette Golden Eagles (11) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (2) Fri. March 25, 2011 7:15 p.m. EST

Last season was a nightmare for the North Carolina Tar Heels (2) has they went through one of their worst years in recent memory, but this year they have been able to get back on track and in contention for the NCAA title. There is no question that Roy Williams and company have both the Ohio State Buckeyes (1) and the Kentucky Wildcats (4) on their minds as they will have to get past one of these teams in order to ultimately get back to the Final Four, but in the meantime they will be putting all their efforts into taking down the Marquette Golden Eagles (11).

As just one of only two Big East teams left in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the Marquette Golden Eagles (11) will be looking to pull off the upset on Friday night as they will have their work cut out for them against a very good North Carolina Tar Heels (2) squad.

As of right now, the Tar Heels have been given the edge in this matchup with a -4.5 point spread. This sounds just about right in my opinion and probably a bit low as North Carolina (2) should get the win convincingly over Marquette (11).
