RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina made everything look easy in its first two NCAA tournament games, from running out to big early leads to cracking the 100-point mark with plenty of time left on the clock.The only people who don't sound all that impressed are, well, those same Tar Heels."We don't think that winning two games in the NCAA tournament is a huge success for us," junior Marcus Ginyard said.
Hot Like FireSeveral say North Carolina is peaking at the right time. It may be hard to argue after the Tar Heels scored at least 100 points in each of their first two tourney games for a total of 221 points, good for third all-time in the first two games.
