What to Watch For

The UNC vs. Kansas game is this Saturday, and it is sure to be a good one. Both teams are ranked in the top 25, and UNC is coming off of a tough loss to Duke. Here is what you should watch for in this game.

The Tar Heels’ offense

The Tar Heels’ offense is really clicking right now. They’re scoring points in bunches and playing with a lot of confidence. Against Kansas, they’ll need to be sharp again. Here are a few things to watch for:

1) Turnovers. The Tar Heels have been very good at taking care of the ball lately, but they could be in for a tough test against Kansas’ length and athleticism. If they turn the ball over, it could be trouble.

2) Three-point shooting. The Tar Heels have been lights out from three-point range lately, but Kansas is no slouch either. This will be a key battle to watch.

3) Rebounding. The Tar Heels have been great on the glass lately, but Kansas is one of the best rebounding teams in the country. This will be a big test for UNC’s big men.

The Jayhawks’ defense

One of the best defenses in the nation, the Jayhawks’ unit is led by defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. and linebacker Joe Dineen Jr. The Jayhawks rank second in the nation in sacks (3.36 per game) and tied for fifth in tackles for a loss (8.1 per game). They are also No. 11 in the nation in rushing defense (108.5 yards per game) and have held opponents to 2.82 yard per carry, which is best in the FBS.

Key Matchups

The North Carolina Tar Heels take on the Kansas Jayhawks tonight in a marquee matchup of two of the nation’s best teams. The Tar Heels are led by freshman phenom Zion Williamson, who will go up against Kansas’ stout frontcourt of Dedric Lawson and Udoka Azubuike. This should be a great game, so let’s take a look at some of the key matchups.

UNC’s frontcourt vs. Kansas’ frontcourt

In what should be one of the most exciting games of the tournament so far, No. 1 seed North Carolina will take on No. 4 Kansas in the Sweet 16 on Friday night. Both teams have been impressive so far in the NCAA tournament, and they each boast a number of talented players.

One key matchup to watch in this game will be UNC’s frontcourt against Kansas’ frontcourt. The Tar Heels have a big advantage in this area, with players likeAll-American forward Justin Jacksonand ACC Player of the Year Candidate Kennedy Meeks. Jackson is averaging 19 points and 5 rebounds per game in the tournament, while Meeks is averaging 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Kansas will counter with a pair of All-Big 12 performers in forward Landen Lucas and guard Frank Mason III. Lucas is averaging 11 points and 8 rebounds per game, while Mason is leading the team with 22 points per game.

This matchup will likely be decisive in determining which team advanced to the Elite Eight.

UNC’s backcourt vs. Kansas’ backcourt

The biggest story line of the game will be the battle in the backcourt between UNC’s Theo Pinson and Coby White against Kansas’ Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes. Pinson and White are two of the best guard playmakers in the country, and they will have their hands full with Dotson and Grimes.

Dotson is a lightning-quick guard who can get to the rim at will, and he is also a very good shooter from deep. Grimes is a versatile scorer who can shoot it from deep, put it on the floor, and finish at the rim. He is also a very good rebounder for his position.

Pinson is one of the best defenders in the country, and he will need to be locked in on Dotson all game long. White is UNC’s leading scorer, and he will need to have a big game offensively for the Tar Heels to win.
