The last four NCAA Tournament appearances that have included a stop in the state of North Carolina have resulted in Final Fours for the Tar Heels (2005, 1998, 1997, 1993).
Carolina holds a 19-1 record in NCAA play in the state of North Carolina (the lone loss came in Raleigh in 1979).
The Tar Heels have at least three NCAA wins against only five programs: Michigan (3-1), Notre Dame (3-0), Ohio State (3-1), Villanova (3-1), and potential second-round opponent Michigan State (3-0).
Five of the last six number-one seeds Carolina has received have resulted in Final Four appearances--the only exception came in 1994.
