Final Four NCAA Basketball Matchup: North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Oregon Ducks

North Carolina has used last year’s disappointment as extra motivation. If you recall, they lost in the national title game to Villanova, on a shot at the buzzer. So here they are, having won a rematch against Kentucky in the Elite Eight, as they got their own buzzer-beater from reserve forward Luke Maye, who has been an incredibly pleasant surprise with 33 points over the last two contests. He’s part of a deep bench, which also includes 6-11 center Tony Bradley, and that is indicative of the kind of size the Tar Heels can throw at the Ducks. The question is, how will they use it? Currently the Tar Heels are 31-7 straight-up and 19-16-2 against the basketball pointspread.

Oregon (33-5 SU, 22-13 ATS) got here with a decisive 74-60 victory over Kansas, which was the #1 seed in the region. But right now Dana Altman’s team has all the pistons pumping, and that includes weapons aside from All-American Dillon Brooks. Tyler Dorsey, the sophomore guard, had 27 points in that Elite 8 game, and he has now scored at least 20 in seven straight outings. Also, Jordan Bell, who was the all-time leading shot blocker for this program, swatted away eight Jayhawk attempts, and he has shot 73% in the NCAA Tournament thus far.BetAnySports patrons know that it is critical for Bell to have another big game, since this team is an playing without center Chris Boucher, who was one of the better shot-blockers in the country, and made the Ducks the #1 team in the nation in shot-blocking percentage. Without Boucher, Oregon fell to Arizona in the Pac 12 title game, but although they allowed 58% from the field, the only lost that game by three points. That’s a pretty good sign going into this contest against North Carolina, which may not be able to put all its big men on the floor because of the quickness advantage that would give the Ducks.

So on the one hand you have a North Carolina team that leads the nation in offensive rebounding percentage (grabbing almost 42% of all missed shots), but they not might not be able to put their two muscle guys on the floor at the same time. We’re talking about Isaiah Hicks and Kennedy Meeks (who had 17 rebounds against Kentucky), because somebody has to guard Brooks and Dorsey, not to mention Tyler Ennis. So we’ll see what kind of role Justin Jackson is going to play; he is North Carolina’s leading scorer at 18.2 points per game, but he might not be as good a defensive alternative as Theo Pinson, the defensive specialist who is versatile enough to cover guards or forwards. Oregon would seem to have enough staying power to take this to the wire, but we also think they’ll play a deliberate game as well, not wanting to run with the Tar Heels. So an UNDER might be in order in this game.
