The North Carolina Tar Heels are back in the NCAA Tournament after failing to qualify last season, which was the first time it happened outright since the 2009-10 season. This campaign, the Tar Heels came back with a vengeance, earning a 27-7 record and winning the ACC regular season championship. However, they would lose in the ACC Tournament Finals to the NC State Wolfpack.

Even with their loss to NC State, North Carolina earned one of the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament alongside Houston, UConn, and Purdue. The Tar Heels will be in the West Region, which is rather stacked with teams such as the Arizona Wildcats, Baylor Bears, and Alabama Crimson Tide. To face those teams, the Tar Heels will have to make it deep into the NCAA Tournament.
