2 Down, 1 To Go

UNC defeated Wisconsin last week to advance to the Final Four. Wisconsin was the third place team in the Big Ten, and put up more than a good fight. This led to a matchup with the Big Ten 2nd place team, Michigan State. Again, the Tar Heels were too much in the 2nd half, and pulled away.
UNC will have to beat the Big Ten champions, Illinois (37-1) to win it all on Monday night. This is the matchup that everyone (mostly) has wanted since November. The two best teams facing off for the title. Illinois is supremely stong, but if the Tar Heels play like they did in the 2nd half last night, NO ONE can beat them. NO ONE. Whomever wins can definitely say they are the best team in the nation.

How UNC got to Monday's title fight: playing as a team. Jawad Williams kept the 'Heels in the game in the 1st half, and then everyone chipped in. Sean May scored all but four of his 22 points in the 2nd half. Raymond Felton settled down, and ended with 16 pts, 8 boards, and 7 dimes. McCants played with the team, scoring 17 and playing outstanding defense.
