The Tar Heels are coming off a gut-wrenching win over Ohio in the Sweet 16. Roy Williams's squad needed overtime to beat the Bobcats on Friday, and the absence of Kendall Marshall was very apparent.

Marshall won't play against Kansas, putting added pressure on Stilman White. The freshman point guard is not nearly the scoring and defensive presence that Marshall is, but the Tar Heels can overcome the challenge should the exceptional frontcourt make their presence felt.

Harrison Barnes shot just three-of-16 from the field against Ohio, and coupled with poor free-throw shooting, the Tar Heels were not quite the dominant team they've been in the regular season.

But Williams still received a quality performance from Tyler Zeller and John Henson. The duo converted 14-of-26 shots, and grabbed 32 rebounds.

North Carolina will need more than just a bounce-back effort from Barnes, and for Zeller and Henson to play big, when they face Kansas.

The Jayhawks have perhaps the best player in the nation in Thomas Robinson, and one of the most exciting guards in Tyshawn Taylor. Yet, the outstanding inside-outside combination didn't perform at their best against North Carolina State.

Robinson shot just four-of-nine from the free-throw line, and shot 41 from the field on Friday. Taylor shot a miserable two-of-14 from the field, and had five turnovers.

Yet, Kansas still earned the win, by limiting the Wolfpack to just 28.4 percent shooting. The outside shots were simply not dropping for the Jayhawks, who were an abysmal one-of-14 from beyond the arc.

Bill Self's squad will need to be more efficient against North Carolina. Jeff Withey had 10 blocks against the Wolfpack, and the Jayhawks will need defensive efforts like that to hold off a North Carolina squad that is desperate to win a title.

The winner faces Ohio State in the Final Four in New Orleans.

PREDICTION: This will be a very interesting contest. Taylor is due to rebound from his tough night on Friday, and will face an inexperienced point guard. Expect Self to push Taylor to penetrate, and draw fouls against the Tar Heels. The Tar Heels will need to pound the ball inside, and Zeller will need to play at his absolute best. Expect a better effort from Henson, but for the Jayhawks to barely edge the Tar Heels.

PREDICTED SCORE: Kansas over North Carolina, 80-77
