Many believed that this was to be the fairytail ending to Michigan St.’s Cinderella story. The Spartans had already upset two number one seeds and would have to upset one more in front of their home crowd in Detroit. Unfortunately for Michigan St., the Tar Heels of North Carolina had their own story in mind and it was a story that was already destined to come true by halftime.

UNC played a nearly perfect first half en route to a 21 pt lead by halftime. They overpowered Michigan St and, consequently, silenced the record crowd. In fact, midway through the second half, many people in the stands were seen walking out. UNC’s stars Tyler Hansbrough had 18 pts and Ty Lawson had 21.

After the game, Hansbrough spoke about his decision to stay at UNC after their disappointing loss to Kansas last season.

“Sounds like I made a pretty good decision,” Hansbrough said. “Nothing beats this feeling right here.”
