John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

It wasn't pretty, and it was closer than expected until the final 45 seconds. But North Carolina survived against Arkansas, and so a streak has a chance at continuing: UNC's never failed to at least make the Elite Eight as a No. 1 seed under Roy Williams.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina survives a furious second half by Arkansas to advance to the Sweet 16 with a 72-65 victory. The Tar Heels closed the game with a 12-0 run.

Razorbacks doing a much better job in second half limiting the Tar Heels to one shot. Carolina has yet to get an offensive rebound after grabbing 14 in the first half.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Senior guard Daryl Macon helped breathe some life back into Arkansas just when it looked like Carolina was going to run away with it. Razorbacks have to feel pretty good going into halftime down just five.
