2017 NCAA Tournament: Bold Predictions For No. 1 North Carolina Vs. No. 4 Butler [Opinion]
Thanks to mega-upsets not going down early and often in the 2017 NCAA tournament (although there were some upsets), fans will get to see teams like the North Carolina Tar Heels taking on the Butler Bulldogs in the Sweet 16.
In this Sweet 16 matchup, the top two teams (in chalk fashion) in the top half of the South will take the court against one another as the No. 1 seed will take on the No. 4 seed. In fact, the top four teams in the South did some surviving and advancing in the first two rounds of the dance, which means some great basketball is about to grace TVs with its presence.
The winner of this contest will go on to play the winner of the No. 2 vs. No. 3 game, which will be played against the Kentucky Wildcats and UCLA Bruins.
Nonetheless, let’s take a look at how No. 1 seed North Carolina and No. 4 seed Butler made it to this stage in the 2017 NCAA tournament.
