More from North Carolina Tar Heels

2013 was a rebuilding year for the Tar Heels after what was supposed to be a championship season with Kendall Marshall, Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller in 2012. Instead, the new batch of Tar Heels in 2013 were under a lot of pressure right away to perform. The team, led now by sophomores James Michael McAdoo and P.J. Hairston, made the tournament as an eight seed, but after beating Villanova in the first round, the Heels ran into a talented Kansas team in the Round of 32 and lost.

Many fans were frustrated this year that the Heels had to play Kansas in round two of the tournament, and I agree that the seeding and positioning in this tournament year was a bit unfair. That’s why this Round of 32 exit is ranked higher than the other three.

UNC beat a good Villanova team with JayVaughn Pinkston and lost to a talented Kansas team with Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey. No shame in that.
