No one wants to lose in the Elite Eight. And no one on the floor for Kansas or North Carolina seems convinced that his team can lose, which has produced an entertaining battle that the Jayhawks lead, 54-53, at the under-16 timeout of the second half.
Kansas opened the second half on a 7-0 run with contributions from Thomas Robinson, Jeff Withey, and Tyshawn Taylor, the Jayhawks' three leading scorers. But North Carolina broke right back with a 6-0 run to slice the Jayhawks' lead to one point, and there's been very little separation at all at any point in this matchup.
