Tar Heels, Berry roll by Butler

Sophomore Matt Bridges delivers against the Tar Heels. The Shelby product recorded two strikeouts in two scoreless relief innings

He's preparing for the Tar Heels (30-7).

With two National Championships, three Final Fours, seven Elite Eights and six NCAA Tournament No. 1 seeds in 12 appearances, it is clear that regardless of the number of questions Williams gets about his approach to new age ideas and obsessions, it isn't hurting his game. Draft Express has Ball as the No. 2 pick and Monk and Fox as the No. 5 and 6 picks.

No one has to tell Butler coach Chris Holtmann about the importance of slowing the Tar Heels on the boards. "It's really been, for a couple decades now, been our guys' mentality". The Heels scored more points than any Butler opponent since 2014, a testament to the explosiveness that makes them a title threat again. Carolina will get theirs, so the Bulldogs will need to connect on their shots since second chance points won't be easy to come by.

"I was thinking, 'What would I do in this situation, ' and stuff like that, that's how you get better", Pinson said.

No. 1 North Carolina vs.

Martin will have to have a productive night offensively, because getting production from anyone will be hard. United Kingdom may want to go Briscoe or Hawkins to really shut Berry down, but Fox seems to be up for the challenged based on what we've seen this tournament. The Tar Heels are averaging nearly 50 rebounds per game, and have grabbed, on average, 19 offensive boards in each of their first two victories.

"They're a good team - they always have been - and play good year in and year out", Kelly said.

In Washington, the White House said President Donald Trump spoke with Prime Minister May and was briefed on the attack. Seven people were arrested in armed raids early Thursday, including in London and second city Birmingham.

Junior wing Theo Pinson missed a chunk of the season with a foot injury, and shortly after he returned at 100 percent, sophomore guard Kenny Williams went down with a knee injury. What has so often saved them has been their offensive rebounding, which has been the best in the country. "He just happened to hit a big-time shot against us a year ago and of course, you can dislike him at the moment for it, but at the same time you've got to move forward".

Of course, things have changed since that meeting December 17, with Carolina players looking back on the loss as a turning point in their season - a night that they learned a tough lesson on defending with effort on every possession.

Williams referenced Mr. Miyagi when point guard Joel Berry rolled his ankle in the NCAA Tournament First Round, the players didn't understand the reference.

It was a much different Kentucky team that faced UCLA and North Carolina earlier, and we can see that this team has improved dramatically since that time. "We've got to try to figure out a way to compete with them and go from there". When a third, Avery Woodson, returning to a FedExForum where he played two college seasons, hugged one player and coach after another.

Kamar Baldwin drives to his left against a North Carolina defender. So guess who was on the front of the Carolina section Friday night? North Carolina scored the first basket Friday for a 2-0 lead, the first time in the 2017 tournament that Butler trailed.

UNC's work on the offensive glass stands out in particular, with Pitino noting in February that it was "an offense unto itself" and was "probably just as potent as anything they do". Everything is going to be tough. Kentucky's Malik Monk scored 47 points. However, a concerning factor is that the normally automatic Berry has eroded lately in his free-throw shooting.

"We just have to space them out as much as possible", Chrabascz explained, "keep them moving. Of course, nobody likes to lose, but that one, when you're right there, all of us, we just need that second chance".
