#6 Seed: The 2006/07 North Carolina Tar Heels were the sophomore act of what would eventually become National Champions two years later.  A dominate front line was anchored by rebounder Tyler Hansborough and Blocker-extraordinaire Brandan Wright. An offensive college basketball machine whose only weakness was 3 point shooting, Roy Williams team challenged lesser talented teams to try and keep up with their young-but-superior talent.  These Tar Heels fell apart late in the second half of a raucous Elite 8 matchup, ultimately losing in overtime against Big East powerhouse Georgetown, in a rematch of the classic 1982 championship game.
