JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - North Carolina coach Roy Williams looked at his team during a late-game huddle Thursday against Harvard and saw panic.
The fourth-seeded Tar Heels had squandered two double-digit leads - including a 16-point advantage in the second half - turned the ball over 17 times and gave up 29 points off those miscues.
There was reason to be alarmed.
Now, with No. 5 seed Arkansas (27-8) on tap Saturday and a Sweet 16 berth at stake in the West Region, Williams is trying to make sure his Tar Heels (25-11) don't get downright fearful.
The Razorbacks rank seventh in the nation in turnover margin, having forced 551 turnovers in 35 games. They play a frantic, full-court-pressing game that tends to speed up opponents and force mistakes and poor shots.
