GAME RECAP

The North Carolina Tar Heels got off to a quick start thanks to the shooting of Joel Berry II and company. The Tar Heels managed to obtain a 20-13 point lead near the 11 minute mark in the first half.

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.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Tyler Davis was an absolute monster today for the Aggies. On offense he dominated the Tar Heels in the paint. On defense Davis did an excellent job protecting the rim, recording a bunch of blocks. This dominant performance against one of the best program’s in the country shows why Davis was a 2018 First-team All-SEC selection.
