UNC's Joel Berry II on injuring his right ankle: "It scared me a little bit that's why I laid on the ground and just made sure everything was fine and moved it around a little bit. It's a little sore but other than that it's fine."

North Carolina advances to face Arkansas on Sunday with 103-64 win over Texas Southern. Tar Heels just tied Kentucky for second most 100-point games in the NCAA tournament. UCLA leads all with 14.

UNC's Justin Jackson will have to try to break the school's single-season record for made 3-pointers (95) against Arkansas. Shammond Williams, who he's tied with and is in attendance, said he's glad Jackson is on the verge, but noted he played with Antawn Jamison & Vince Carter and didn't get to take shots like Jackson.

Joel Berry II went back to the tunnel/locker room a second time but came back and went straight to the scorer's table to check in. Crisis averted for North Carolina.

Joel Berry II returns to bench with a light jog. He's huddled with Roy Williams and the trainer possibly explaining his availability. Looks to be stretching his right ankle.

North Carolina having flashbacks of Kendall Marshall in 2012 when Joel Berry II fell to the ground. Berry limped through the tunnel back to the locker room area to be examined.

North Carolina is just practicing now. Called timeout with :07 in first half to diagram a last shot and Joel Berry II delivered his first made 3-pointer of the game.

Good sign for North Carolina, looks like Justin Jackson is out of his shooting slump. Over his last four games, Jackson was 7-31 (22%) from 3-point range. He's made three of his four from deep and started off 5 of 6 from the floor.

Extended timeouts in the NCAA tournament had both teams on the floor while cheerleaders were still performing. Earlier in the week Roy Williams said he gets tired of talking in huddles, the players know from practice what they should be doing anyway.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas Southern coaches didn't anticipate making 3-pointers against North Carolina instead stressing their mid-range game would have to be on point. Maybe they'll reassess that strategy after the Tigers have already made two threes in their first four field goals.
