While a North Carolina vs. Arizona Elite Eight matchup would draw high ratings, the drama-filled narrative that would be written could be a distraction for North Carolina.

Over the past three seasons, we have seen flashes of Caleb Love being really good at times and in some stretches, the exact opposite. When he chose to transfer from North Carolina to Arizona, the Tar Heel fan base was mixed with emotion.

Love, to this day, will openly discuss his passion for the University of North Carolina, but everyone knows he would feel a sense of revenge to beat his former squad with a chance to go to the Final Four on the line.

The Pac-12 Player of the Year has shown throughout his college career that he shows up big when games matter the most. If you don't believe that, look back at North Carolina's victory over Duke in the Final Four in 2022.
