In their victory against the Ducks it was North Carolina limiting the Ducks to just 37.9% shooting with 26.9% from the three point line. The Tar Heels had their struggles as well on the offensive end as they hit on 36.8% and missed 8 of 27 free throw attempts. North Carolina did take care of the basketball better than Oregon by committing five less turnovers. The Tar Heels had a close call with the Kentucky Wildcats in the Elite Eight as they win 75-73 on a buzzer beating shot.

Gonzaga enters this NCAA Tournament title game as the second best shooting and defending team in college basketball. The Bulldogs make 50.8% of their shots while limiting their opponents to 36.5%. They do rebound well at 40.5 a game which is sixth best in college hoops. Gonzaga will have to deal with the size and length of North Carolina as well as the Tar Heels athleticism running up and down the court. A fast pace game could help North Carolina here. Gonzaga battled a hot South Carolina Gamecocks team in the semifinals and came away with the 77-73 victory but failed to cover the 6 ½ point spread. Gonzaga had another good shooting game as they had against Xavier in the Elite Eight. The Bulldogs shot 48.3% while limiting South Carolina 37.9%.
