There were at least three times that I noticed Michigan scoring droughts of around three minutes in the trend box; you could probably guess which way this game went from that alone, but factor in North Carolina’s white-hot shooting in the second half and this was a rout. Michigan had no answer for guard Caleb Love, who finished with 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting (4-7 3P) and four assists. Defensive rotations were slow or nonexistent; North Carolina had 10 points off dunks, 18 off layups and a total of 34 points in the paint.
