The second set of Sweet 16 games have begin and so far the intrigue is not nearly what we saw on Thursday night. The first final of the night saw the North Carolina Tar Heels crush the No. 11-seed Marquette Golden Eagles 81-63. The difference in the game cam in the first half when Marquette went over 8 minutes without scoring a single point. North Carolina scored 19 straight points to turn a 10-8 deficit into a 27-10 lead and the game was never in doubt after that.
The score at halftime was 40-15 Tar Heels and the final 20 minutes seemed to be go by at a snail’s pace.
North Carolina will await the winner from tonight’s game between Ohio State and Kentucky.
