UNC Beats Gonzaga in Sweet 16

By  | 

Flawless at the start and composed throughout, Ty Lawson and North Carolina breezed to another regional final.

Lawson scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half, and the
top-seeded Tar Heels routed Gonzaga 98-77 in the South Regional on
Friday night. They'll play second-seeded Oklahoma on Sunday for a
berth in the Final Four.

Tyler Hansbrough added 24 points and 10 rebounds for North
Carolina, which won its 99th NCAA tournament game, breaking a tie
with Kentucky for the most by any school.

Wayne Ellington scored 19 points and Danny Green added 13 for
the Tar Heels (31-4), who reached the regional finals for the third
straight year.
