3/18/2018*TEXAS A&M              
TEXAS A&M: Last season: 16-15.
Who's gone: G J.C. Hampton, F Tavario Miller.
Who's back: F Robert Williams. A projected NBA lottery pick, Williams chose to return for his sophomore season instead of entering the draft. He looks to build off a solid freshman season where he averaged 11.9 points and 8.2 rebounds. The 6-foot-10 Williams led the SEC with 46 blocked shots during league play and was second in rebounds a game with 9.6 during conference play. He had 22 games with multiple blocks. C Tyler Davis. The junior led the SEC and ranked 14th in the nation by making 62.9 percent of his field goals last season. The 6-foot-10 Davis averaged 14.1 points and seven rebounds a game last year.
Who's new: G Duane Wilson. The graduate transfer played at Marquette for three seasons where he made 51 starts and averaged 8.8 points and 2.3 rebounds; G/F Savion Flagg. The freshman averaged 31.3 points, 11.1 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.4 blocks a game in his last year in high school and was named the fourth-best player in Texas by ESPN.
The Skinny: After failing to make the NIT last season after reaching the Sweet 16 in 2016, the Aggies have the talent to return to the NCAA Tournament this season. The key will be the continued development of Williams and if Wilson or J.J. Caldwell can step in to provide an upgrade at point guard.
N CAROLINA: Last season: 33-7, won program's sixth NCAA championship.
Who's gone: SF Justin Jackson, F/C Kennedy Meeks, F Isaiah Hicks, F Tony Bradley Jr., G Nate Britt.
Who's back: Final Four Most Outstanding Player Joel Berry II (14.7 points) returns at the point, though he could miss the start of the season after breaking a bone in his right hand. The Tar Heels return senior swingman Theo Pinson and junior wing guard Kenny Williams III, while March hero Luke Maye ' who hit the last-second shot against Kentucky to send UNC to the Final Four ' is the lone returnee up front.
Who's new: The Tar Heels found experienced help in Pittsburgh graduate transfer Cameron Johnson to fill Jackson's role on the wing. There's also a freshman class led by guard Jalek Felton and includes size in Garrison Brooks, Sterling Manley and Brandon Huffman.
The Skinny: The return of Berry and Pinson gives the Tar Heels toughness and leadership, and they can use plenty of combinations on the perimeter with a deep backcourt. The question is whether they can find reliable production inside considering their Hall of Fame coach prefers to have two big men and emphasizes rebounding. How the Tar Heels answer that will determine whether they have any chance to make it to the final Monday night in April for a third consecutive season.
North Carolina meets big Texas A&M squad

Ninth-ranked North Carolina's objective is to stick with the process that works.

That's a similar approach for Texas A&M.

So the teams will be trying to draw on their strengths when they meet in the NCAA Tournament's second round Sunday at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.

It makes sense that North Carolina is entrenched in the process because those methods helped produce a national championship last year.

"I don't feel any pressure," senior guard Joel Berry II said. "This is our last (tournament), and we just want to enjoy it as much as we can and just do like we did last year and take it one game at a time and make sure we're focusing on the game that's coming up."

North Carolina (26-10), which is the West Region's No. 2 seed, and seventh-seeded Texas A&M (21-12) made it through the opening round unscathed.

"We turned it over too much (against Lipscomb), but a lot of stuff we did other than that was good," Tar Heels guard Cameron Johnson said. "Hopefully we can take this and build some momentum from it going into the next one."

Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy said he knows the Aggies have a luxury with their length along the front line. Three players at 6-foot-9 or taller will have to try to take advantage of North Carolina's relative inexperience in the post.

A 44-26 rebounding edge on Providence was evidence of what the Aggies can accomplish in that department.

"It's something we take pride in," said forward Robert Williams, who's listed at 6-10.

"That's what we do," said Aggies forward Tyler Davis, also at 6-10.

Williams and Davis combined for 29 rebounds Friday. But the Tar Heels have long been considered one of the country's top rebounding groups.

Guard Admon Gilder, whose 18 points led four Texas A&M players in double-figure scoring in the first round, said an emphasis on defense is something the team takes seriously.

"We hang our hats on playing defense every day," Gilder said.

Berry, who was last year's Most Outstanding Player in the Final Four, reached a notable mark during Friday's game. He scored 14 points to move to 1,792 career points and into 13th place on the school's all-time list, passing legendary Michael Jordan. This NCAA venue is the home of the Charlotte Hornets, who are owned by Jordan.

"I think he left after three years, didn't he?" Berry said. "So it's kind of expected for me to pass him. ... But just to see highlights of him and to be able to have that honor, that's something great. I can always remember that."

Berry and forward Luke Maye both average 17 points for the Tar Heels, who are aiming to reach the Sweet 16 for the fourth year in a row. They've advanced out of the second round the last eight times they've held the better seed.

Texas A&M is North Carolina's fifth Southeastern Conference opponent in the last 10 second-round games in the tournament.

North Carolina holds a 2-1 series edge, though Texas A&M won a 1980 NCAA Tournament meeting in double overtime in Denton, Texas.

North Carolina is 34-1 in NCAA Tournament games in its home state. That includes a 12-0 record in Charlotte.

"Players play," coach Roy Williams said. "I've never lost to a building, but this has been very comfortable for us. Hopefully, it will last one more game."
