UCLA (27-7) squeaked by the No. 13 seed Akron Zips 57-53 in the first round before a 72-56 victory over the No. 5 seed Saint Mary’s Gaels to get to the Sweet 16. The Bruins best defender and second-leading scorer Jaime Jaquez Jr. left the Round 2 game with a foot injury, so check for news reports prior to game time.
North Carolina (26-9) hammered the No. 9 Marquette Golden Eagles 95-63 in Round 1 and is the only team to knock out a No. 1 seed as they held on to beat the Baylor Bears 93-86 in overtime. The Tar Heels love to play fast, and their strength is on offense where they rate No. 20 nationally in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency.
UCLA is a 2.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 141.5.
