2022 Tournament PreviewThe Tar Heels were on the bubble in February but won six of their last seven and advanced to the ACC tournament semifinals to grab an NCAA bid. North Carolina, though, has only two Quad 1 wins, the most notable when it played spoiler in Coach K's final game at Cameron Indoor. A non-conference win against Michigan is the other highlight in coach Hubert Davis' first season. A 6-10 junior, all-ACC star Armando Bacot (16.5 ppg, 12.5 rpg) has 24 double-doubles, third most in the nation, and helps UNC rank seventh in rebounding rate. He's surrounded by capable three-point shooters, with sophomore guard Caleb Love (15.4 ppg) and Oklahoma transfer Brady Manek (14.4 ppg) both knocking down more than 70 treys. The team lacks perimeter defense, though, ranking 255th in opponent three-point percentage. And the rotation took a hit when Marquette transfer Dawson Garcia (9.0 ppg, 5.5 rpg) left midseason due to a family matter. UNC surviving the opening weekend doesn't seem likely with Baylor likely waiting in the second round.
