Kansas Jayhawks vs North Carolina Tar Heels takes place in the NCAA 2013 tournament on Sunday third round. This South region match up should be an intriguing affair and is in fact the second straight year these two teams have been drawn against each other in the tournament. The game is scheduled to tip off at 5.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Former Kansas Jayhawks coach Roy Williams will meet his old side, and be looking to get one over on them.
Last year the No. 2 Jayhawks managed to take down the No. 1 North Carolina, but the roles have been reversed this year with Kansas the favorites this time around. Kansas are No. 1 seeds, where as North Carolina are No. 8 seeds this year, although the history and connections between these two teams mean anything can happen today.
North Carolina managed to navigate their way past Villanova in their first NCAA game this year, with P.J Hairston scoring 23 points and five three-pointers.
Hairston and Reggie Bullock will be the core players the team will be looking towards to drive them forward today, and they will need to be at their best if they are to take down the strong Jayhawks defense.
Meanwhile Kansas defeated No. 16 Western Kentucky although the game was a lot tighter than most analysts would have predicted before the game. Withey scored 17 points, seven blocks and six rebounds, and he proved the difference between the sides and help Kansas through.
