Texas A&M won its first game of the NCAA Tournament by grinding out a win over Providence on Friday. The Aggies had 4 players finish in double figures. Texas A&M boasts an impressive front court, led by the duo of Robert Williams and Tyler Davis. The pair both had doubles-doubles in the win over Providence and combined for 27 points and a staggering 29 rebounds.
But North Carolina will have an equally strong front court in Theo Pinson and Luke May. Against Lipscomb, an opponent who isn’t as good as Providence, May and Pinson posted a combined 25 points and 19 rebounds. Carolina came away with an 84-66 win on Friday.
The game will likely be decided on how well Texas A&M’s guards play. TJ Starks and Armon Gilder both finished in double figures in the Providence win and will likely need to do so again for Texas A&M to have a shot at beating the defending champions. And the duo will have to find a way to slow down Joel Berry, North Carolina’s dynamic point guard. On the season, Berry is averaging 17.1 points per game.
Texas A&M will also have to combat a pro-North Carolina crowd as the game will be played in Charlotte. North Carolina also has an experience factor, as the Tar Heels have played in back-to-back national championship games. And while Texas A&M does have NCAA Tournament experience, it also missed the tournament a season ago.
