UNC Gets No. 1 Seed in Midwest


Posted Mar 11, 2012


The NCAA Selection Committee has awarded North Carolina with a No. 1 seed in the Midwest (St. Louis) Region of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The Tar Heels play Friday in Greensboro at 4 p.m. against the winner of the play-in game between Lamar and Vermont.

“We are extremely disappointed that we lost to Florida State today and did not win the ACC Tournament, but we are also extremely pleased that the NCAA selection committee felt we deserved a number one seed," Roy Williams said in a statement on Sunday evening.

"It’s a long, long year and for the most part our club has performed very well all season. Now, we start a completely new season and everyone starts even.

"We have hopes and dreams to play well. Everyone talks about playing well for three weeks but you have to play well in each and every game to advance. We look forward to getting started.”
