In order to get one of four elusive tickets to the national semifinals next week in Phoenix, Kentucky will have to get past top-seeded North Carolina in the South Region finals Sunday in what figures to be another memorable showdown between the two storied programs. Wildcats G Malik Monk's 47 points in a December 17 win over the Tar Heels are the second-most points an opponent has ever scored on North Carolina.
"It's incredible that we were in that game where they practically fouled out my team", Calipari said. "But I know that when Frank Martin (set) foot on campus, you just got this vibe that the ball was rolling".
Similarly, the Carolina victory unfolded in much the same way as last season's loss in the national title game, only from the Heels' perspective, with a better result.
"That's why they call it March Madness", Berry said. "In this program, these kids, they come here, tell me what I have to do".
The total has gone under in three of North Carolina's last four games on a Saturday. Their two main teams - No. 1 seed Gonzaga and No. 3 seed OR - made the Final Four and will be representing the region like never seen before in the NCAA Tournament. "When coach Smith was at North Carolina during the season, he said, it's all about the team".
"It's fantastic that we were in that game after they practically fouled out my team", Kentucky coach John Calipari said. "So when he said that, we all locked in and didn't listen to any outsiders, didn't listen to anybody else but Coach. We're excited to play". There is no love lost on either side of this rivalry and Duke fans are likely confused as to why Laettner is showing the Tar Heels any love at all.
There's one particular UNC fan who has been by the Tar Heels' side for nearly every trip to the Final Four! Before this season, SC hadn't posted a win in the NCAA Tournament since 1973.
"I mean, we had a great year", said Fox. I'm here because I want to be coached. "And they're all of that magnitude". Carolina is the one with the ball in the air this time, the beauty of the tournament and the cruelty of it in the air along with it in Memphis.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Roy Williams went all "Gone With the Wind" when a player asked about his North Carolina Tar Heels making the last shot Sunday to edge Kentucky to the Final Four. When the two teams played in December, Monk and Fox combined for 71 points.
Bam Adebayo and De'Aaron Fox each scored 13 points for Kentucky and Monk, the Southeastern Conference co-player of the year, finished with 12.
Fox battled injuries and illness to rank second at 16.7 points - including a career-high 39 as Kentucky beat UCLA in the Sweet 16 to avenge the earlier loss - along with a team-high 165 assists. Although his National Basketball Association stock is on the rise, Fox is focused on the present instead of the future. "I would never sell it so I don't even think about what it's worth in monetary value". "Definitely without those two scoring, I felt like we could have been down more. We wanted them to go attack". "I feel so blessed". "De'Aaron had it going, and they all accepted it". But even college basketball heroes have responsibilities away from the hardwood.
