Southwestern Athletic Conference

NCAA tournament preview: South Regional boasts North Carolina, Kentucky and UCLA

NCAA tournament preview: South Regional boasts North Carolina, Kentucky and UCLA

A look at the NCAA tournament’s South Regional:

::

FRIDAY: GREENVILLE, S.C.

1 North Carolina (27-7, at-large)

vs. 16 Texas Southern (23-11, Southwestern Athletic Conference champion)

Texas Southern Coach Mike Davis, who was Bobby Knight’s successor at Indiana, may be scowling more than usual as the Tar Heels run roughshod over his outmanned squad.

::

8 Arkansas (25-9, at-large)

vs. 9 Seton Hall (21-11, at-large)

If Seton Hall, which is No. 38 nationally in defensive efficiency, can replicate its effort in a two-point loss to Villanova on Friday, this could be another 9-over-8 result, as has become common.
