NCAA Tournament 2012, North Carolina Vs. Kansas: Teams Bolt From Gate In Elite Eight

North Carolina and Kansas both have plenty of talent and reason to run. The Tar Heels and Jayhawks are doing that early in their Elite Eight matchup, and Kansas leads 12-10 at the under-16 timeout of the first half.

It's no major surprise that Thomas Robinson is anchoring the Jayhawks: his four points and two rebounds in the early going are in keeping with his stellar season. But Jeff Withey's five points are a boost for Kansas, especially against North Carolina's sequoia-ish front line.

The Tar Heels have countered with a superb start from Stilman White, playing in the injured Kendall Marshall's stead. White has two points and two assists so far.
