This Tar Heels squad is much different from last year's group. Obviously. But I think their versatility will carry them into the ACC's top tier. Definitely want to see how they look once Cam Johnson returns.

Theo Pinson worked on his perimeter game in the offseason. That's great. But this is who he is. He's best when he attacks and plays aggressive inside. He fell in love with the 3-pointer in some of his first games this year. But the Tar Heels need Pinson to just go to work and make plays around the basket.

Portland not intimidated by North Carolina. Pilots fighting for loose balls and rebounds. Surprised by how physical Terry Porter's team is at the start of this game. But they have to play that way all game to have a chance.

Notre Dame led 4-2 and 67-66. That's it.

Wichita State's halfcourt defense so far has been exceptional. Denying passing lanes, collapsing once Notre Dame puts it on the deck to drive, contesting perimeter shots.

The Battle 4 Atlantis bracket shakeup impacts Villanova's non-conference schedule. Instead of Purdue and perhaps Arizona, they get Tennessee and NC State/Northern Iowa/SMU. Toughest remaining non-con games after the tourney are vs. Gonzaga in NYC, at Temple.

Down goes Arizona. The second-ranked Wildcats lost 90-84 to unranked NC State in the Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis to become the first top-10 to lose to a team from outside the top-10 this season. Arizona got big games from Deandre Ayton (27 points, 14 rebounds) and Allonzo Trier (27 points, 5 rebounds), but it wasn't enough as NC State pulled away in the final three minutes.

Tom Izzo just told me he doesn't expect Miles Bridges (sprained ankle) to play tomorrow against DePaul. Izzo put it at 30 percent chance.
