In the marquee game of a quiet week in college basketball, North Carolina slipped past Tennessee by a score of 78-73 on Sunday afternoon. We moved the Tar Heels up to a #1 seed last week and they will face another test against a surging Ohio State squad on Saturday. Of course, the tougher tests will come during ACC action, but UNC is looking like a team that can win the conference title.
