Prediction #3: UNC wins 76-62

I went on the record earlier this week saying that Harvard wasn’t a great matchup with UNC. I stand by that stance, but, I still am picking the Tar Heels to win easily over the Crimson.

I see Harvard sticking around early in the contest, especially in the first half if UNC gets off to a slow shooting start. But, Carolina is just so much more talented and so much more tall than their opponents from the Northeast that I don’t think the Crimson will be able to stick with the Heels for two halves.

I think Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks each have 10 plus points for the Heels, I think the duo of freshman, Justin Jackson and Joel Berry II, each play well, and I think UNC can comfortably roll into the Round of 32 and get ready to face either Arkansas or Wofford.
