Welcome back to a Tar Heel-stained edition of BracketRacket, the one-stop shopping place for all your offbeat NCAA tournament needs. Today, we blow the whistle on the NCAA, examine the relative merits of aging, check the odometer on DeAngelo Williams' car, and close out the first weekend of games with a salute to the greatest closer ever. So without further ado:
SAN ANTONIO - Baylor and Iowa State left Texas bound for the Sweet 16. Both are hoping to return for the Final Four.
SAN ANTONIO - Iowa State's DeAndre Kane did exactly as his coach had instructed, driving for a layup that gave the Cyclones the lead. North Carolina never got a chance to answer because Roy Williams' players didn't do what he wanted.
SAN ANTONIO - North Carolina had 1.6 seconds to score and avoid another early NCAA tournament exit, but instead spent that precious time trying to call timeout.
SAN ANTONIO - North Carolina isn't going home early like Duke. But only just barely.
SAN ANTONIO - Providence's Bryce Cotton became the breakout star of this NCAA tournament in his first and last game.
