North Carolina is No. 1 seed, plays Friday

North Carolina will begin play in the NCAA tournament on Friday as the top seed in the Midwest region. The Tar Heels will play either Lamar or Vermont on Friday at the Greensboro Coliseum.

If the Tar Heels advance, they would then play on Sunday against either Creighton, the No. 8 seed in the region, or Alabama, the No. 9 seed.

Kansas is the second-seeded team in the Midwest, which sets up the possibility that the Tar Heels and Jayhawks could play one another in the regional championship game in St. Louis. Georgetown is the No. 3 seed in the Midwest, and Michigan the No. 4 seed.

The Tar Heels are tournament's third No. 1 team. Kentucky, the No. 1 seed in the South, received the top overall seed, and Syracuse, the No. 1 seed in the East, received the second overall top seed. Michigan State, the top seed in the West, received the final No. 1 seed.

Midwest region is the easiest with the south being the most difficult.

Agree...Heels have a veeeerry easy road. No real tests until KU in Big 12 country.

I wonder if the ACC tourney refs are riding with the Heels on their bus next week...
