Though both teams have held the lead in the second half, Kansas seems to have the upper hand in its Elite Eight tussle with North Carolina. But will the Jayhawks be able to capitalize on their leads, like a 68-64 advantage at the under-eight timeout, and move on to the Final Four?
Tyshawn Taylor's play would suggest that much. Taylor's got 19 points on the evening without a single three, and has four rebounds, assists and steals thanks to his all-around play, much improved from less-impressive efforts in the first three games of Kansas's tournament run.
North Carolina's James Michael McAdoo has been the Tar Heels' go-to option, and netted 15 points, but no other Tar Heel has more than 12 points in this one.
