Excerpt From: CBS Sports. Written By: Chip Patterson.

Sunday afternoon’s North Carolina-Notre Dame game, an 83-76 Tar Heels win, felt like a tournament game. These two teams have played in the last NCAA and ACC tournaments, so when the game got moved to Greensboro, N.C. the building buzzed a little out of habit.
