UNC's Roy Williams 'hopeful' Joel Berry II available for Arkansas game

Next for the Tar Heels is Sunday's second-round game against eighth-seeded Arkansas (26-9), which eliminated ninth-seeded Seton Hall by 77-71 in the site's opening game. "It's an opportunity. They're a 1 seed".

"I think he's extremely important to them and he fits into that constant motion of harassment, havoc kind of mentality that Mike tries to push". So we're ready to go. Arkansas would make it all the way to the Sweet 16 only to be sent packing by UNC.

"I feel certain that he'll be able to go [on Sunday]", North Carolina coach Roy Williams said. "And we have tradition as well". The Razorbacks have nine players averaging more than 10 minutes per game with each playing in all 35 games this season. "So we've gotta figure out somebody to play". We're trending that direction. "You can just go out there and play".

N.C. State players felt snubbed when they didn't get to host the first two rounds while five other ACC teams did. Played Duke as well. "When we handled their pressure well, we got easy shots". So, I mean, we have the utmost confidence in our offense, our defense. We're not going to change.

Junior guard Jaylen Barford, who had 20 points and 7 rebounds, expressed that same sentiment.

"I'm never a guy to let something like this stop me from playing", Berry said. "I'm walking better than I was yesterday". He left the game, briefly, and returned after being evaluated by Doug Halverson, the team's head trainer. The Tar Heels seek the same prize Sunday evening as they face the Razorbacks in the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

Michael Qualls had 27 points and 10 rebounds, Bobby Portis 18 points and 14 rebounds, Rashad Madden 13 and Anthlon Bell 11 in the loss.

Stranger things have happened than a team like Arkansas beating a team like North Carolina in the second round.

Only two - big man Moses Kingsley and reserve guard Anton Beard - played as many as 10 minutes. "I draw back on those experiences I had at UAB".

Watkins expressed that same sentiment.

Anderson, a Razorbacks assistant to Nolan Richardson for 17 seasons, took UAB and Missouri to a combined six NCAA Tournament appearances before returning to Arkansas.

"We're both high-major programs", Hannahs said.

Anderson, 128-73 in his sixth season at Arkansas, has the Razorbacks in the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three seasons. I mean, he was nearly like a one-man wrecking crew. The game, I think, about ten minutes to go or eight minutes to go, was nearly 50-50, something like that. "You don't know when it's going to come, those runs are going to come, those turnovers are going to come". We'll have to see what it's like. North Carolina came into the game as the top offensive rebounding team in the country according to KenPom and Friday afternoon was no different.

"He looks more like a sprinter, but I happen to think he's a marathon guy that has stuck to his philosophy, stuck to what he believes in", Williams said. But majority were not, or half and half, probably. "We know that shots might not fall, but we have to stick together". "We've got to to get much, much better at it".
