Second Round - North Carolina

Bracketology has the Tar Heels as a two seed and right now has Florida feeding into North Carolina in Charlotte.

Beyond the fact this would turn into essentially a home game for North Carolina, they are also a bad matchup for the Gators regardless of where the game is played.

Florida's main strength is their ability to grab offensive rebounds and create second chance opportunities.

North Carolina are one of the top defensive rebounding teams in the country, grabbing 79% of their opponent misses, the third best rate in the country.

Add it all together and as the pressure of the game would ramp up, Florida would need every thing to go perfect to make it to the Sweet 16.
