Everything seemed to be going North Carolina’s way until Texas A&M woke up. Simply put North Carolina had no answer for the size of Texas A&M in the paint.
Texas A&M center Tyler Davis went into beast mode near the end of the half. The junior center scored 13 points in the first half to help give the the Aggies a big 42-28 lead before halftime.
North Carolina nearly brought it back within 12 points on the last play of the half but the shot rimmed out.
In the second half the Aggies broke it open forcing North Carolina to force many three-pointers. Luke Maye got into foul trouble in the second half. Meanwhile Theo Pinson and Kenny Williams were non-existent on offense.
All of this resulted in a huge victory for the Texas A&M basketball program. Now they will take on Michigan in the Sweet Sixteen.
