Butler eager to add North Carolina to list of its upsets

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) No. 4 seed Butler (25-8) vs. No. 1 seed North Carolina (29-7)

Third round, South region; Memphis, Tennessee; 7:09 p.m. EDT.

BOTTOM LINE: Butler is 2-4 against No. 1 seeds in the tournament all-time, reaching the national title game in 2010 and 2011 when they knocked off a No. 1 seed. The Bulldogs also beat defending national champ Villanova not once, but twice this season. They have not trailed in beating a pair of double-digit seeds in Winthrop and Middle Tennessee. The last time North Carolina came into Memphis as the South's No. 1 seed, the Tar Heels wound up winning the 2009 national championship. The Atlantic Coast Conference regular season champs routed Texas Southern and rallied from five down in the final 2:57 to beat Arkansas and reach this stage.
