NCAA Tournament: UNC rolls past Lipscomb in first round

UNC coach has Tiger fever doesn't care who knows The North Carolina Tar Heels open their NCAA tournament on Friday but you wouldn't know it from a quick conversation with their head

Williams had 18 points to aid in the Heels 84-66 win.

The win also moved head coach Roy Williams to 28-0 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in his career. He was on the bench once again previous year, not by his own choice, as a knee injury forced him to miss the final 14 games of the season.

"I was so excited this week to play this game", Williams said. So, you know this is what you look forward to growing up. That's the reason I love Coach so much.

The junior guard didn't disappoint in his first start in the NCAA tournament, after logging eight minutes total in four games during the 2016 tournament trip.

North Carolina will begin its chase for a second consecutive National Championship on Friday, March 16 with a first round game in the NCAA tournament against Lipscomb. Kenny Cooper led Lipscomb's team in scoring with 14 points, while shooting 5 of 10 (50%) from the field. Williams led all starters in scoring, with all five posting double-figure scoring outings. "To have an in-state kid be able to make the team after three hard years of trying to make it.it's just a dream come true for him". "His freshman year, he was 1 for 13 from 3", UNC coach Roy Williams said of Kenny. "I was just reflecting on all the times that maybe I thought this wouldn't happen". Betrayed by their 3-point shooting - making just 7-of-28 from behind the arch for the game - the Bison could never mount a real challenge in the second half. Pinson put his hands up as if to say, "Calm down", and then burst into laughter.

"He's a basketball player".

Pinson finished with 15 points and a team-high 10 rebounds and seven assists. "People want to just call him one thing and that's a shooter".

2-seed in the West regional, will take on No. 7-seed Texas A&M on Sunday. Knocking down deep three-pointers and leading Marshall's potent offensive attack, the Thundering Herd scored 47 second-half points to run past the Shockers. The Conference USA champions are a risky team in this field if they continue to hit shots.

Lipscomb (23-10) had its own fun in the first half.

Behind its defense, UNC came back to take the lead for good with less than four minutes to go in the half.

Thanks to the Selection Show the Tar Heels get to play "at home" for their first round game. The Bison played very nice in the first half and UNC was a little sloppy. The Tar Heels have a rebound margin of 10.0 and a turnover margin of -0.4.

After picking up two early fouls, the junior guard came out firing, making six of his eight field goal attempts and his first four 3-pointers.

Lipscomb forward Eli Pepper seemed to be enjoying himself, joking on a few occasions during the game with North Carolina's Luke Maye and Theo Pinson.

But on Friday, it was Williams' day. Following the 2009 championship, North Carolina tied for ninth in the league and was relegated to the 2010 National Invitation Tournament, where it reached the final before falling to Dayton.

"We have good players who have really played well, the fans do help us", coach Roy Williams said.
