NCAA Tournament: Vermont Catamounts vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

Tyler Zeller had 17 points and 15 rebounds to help North Carolina beat Vermont 77-58 on Friday in its NCAA tournament opener despite playing without injured starter John Henson. Freshman forward James Michael McAdoo added a season-high 17 points for the top-seeded Tar Heels (30-5), who pushed ahead by double figures late in the first half and then broke the game open after halftime. Sandro Carissimo had 11 points for the 16th-seeded Catamounts (24-12), who beat Lamar in one of Wednesday’s First Four games. That earned them a trip to Greensboro to face the Tar Heels in front of a home-state crowd wearing plenty of light blue. The Tar Heels didn’t turn in a rousing performance, but they had a danger-free afternoon and advanced to face Creighton on Sunday in the third round of the Midwest Regional. They also bought Henson another two days to recover from that sprained left wrist.
