This is the one matchup on this list that UNC basketball fans would like to forget.

When you think about North Carolina basketball, you probably envision a high-scoring, fast-paced offense. However, in this game, they struggled to put the ball in the basket.

Roy Williams started a solid five consisting of Joel Berry, Kenny Williams, Theo Pinson, Luke Maye, and Garrison Brooks. North Carolina shot under 25% from the field in that game, 5.6% from three-point range, and scored a total of 45 points.

Joshua Langford led the way for the Spartans, scoring 23 points and making 5 three-pointers out of 7 attempts.
