North Carolina returns to Sweet 16, beats Washington 81-59

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After making an early exit from the NCAA Tournament last season, North Carolina breezed to the Sweet 16.

Luke Maye and Nassir Little each scored 20 points and the top-seeded Tar Heels beat Washington 81-59 Sunday. They never trailed and moved on to face fifth-seeded Auburn on Friday in a Midwest Regional semifinal.

Last year, one season removed from its national championship, North Carolina was routed by Texas A&M in the second round. The Tar Heels (29-6) were determined it wasn't going to happen again.
