2012 NCAA Tournament Elite Eight: Kansas, North Carolina Trading Lead

Kansas has held the lead for most of its Elite Eight game against North Carolina in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. But the Tar Heels have been nipping at the Jayhawks' heels throughout, and took the lead at 61-60 just before the under-12 timeout.

North Carolina reeled off an 8-2 run to erase a five-point edge for Kansas and take back the lead. John Henson and P.J. Hairston each made jumpers in the run, while James Michael McAdoon and Tyler Zeller both went 2-for-2 in trips to the free throw line.

Kansas, which has gotten a combined 43 points from Thomas Robinson, Jeff Withey, and Tyshawn Taylor, could use another run of its own.
