The Tar Heels have a legendary program and are ready to return to the national stage. After a successful season-long campaign, North Carolina has proved it has the talent on both sides of the ball to go the distance. It's hard to find another hoops program with this kind of balance and versatility.
Most teams will struggle with matchup issues at some point during this Tournament. That should not be the case for a North Carolina team that can excel in a variety of ways against any style of basketball... However, as long as the shots are falling, North Carolina has the flexibility and firepower to beat any team in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
The Ducks haven't been to the Final Four since 1939, but don't expect Oregon to be awestruck. This is a championship team loaded with talent, and a squad that made Kansas look silly in its own backyard. The Ducks led a talent-heavy Pac 12, so look for Oregon to strut its way to the championship title.
Oregon is the cream of the crop. They have the superstar, they have the role players, they are battle tested, and they are very well coached. Expect to see Oregon cutting down the nets this year in Phoenix.
