Revved-up Tar Heels attempt to outrun Auburn

No. 1 seed North Carolina will face No. 5 seed Auburn in Friday's first semifinal in the Midwest Regional, and it shapes up like a track meet on a basketball court.

Following a narrow escape against New Mexico State, Auburn demolished Kansas, 89-75, in the second round. The Tigers raced to a 26-point halftime lead on the way to handing Kansas the fourth-worst NCAA tournament defeat in program history.

"The reality is that this Auburn basketball team is a better team than the Kansas team," Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said after the game. "I think (Kansas coach) Bill (Self) will say that. We have some firepower. We like to think we're tough to play against because we have 10 guys that play and they all contribute. I thought the better team won."
