2006-07 What If Tar Heels

Coach: Roy Williams

Strength: Depth (can go 10-11 deep)

Weakness: Inexperience (freshman backcourt)

Will win the tournament if : front line combo of Williams, Wright and Hansbrough all play to potential

Will lose in the first round if: Lawson and Ellington's inexperience proves too much to overcome

Captain: Reyshawn Terry

This team in one word: Deep

1998-99 What If Tar Heels

Coach: Bill Guthridge

Strength: Experience (three seniors and junior in starting lineup)

Weakness: Depth

Will win the tournament if: Ed Cota controls the tempo and they get out on multiple fast breaks

Will lose in the first round if: Haywood gets in foul trouble, leaving center spot to Lang or Bersticker

Captains: Okulaja, Jamison, Carter

This team in one word: Alley-oop
