It wasn't pretty, and it was closer than expected until the final 45 seconds. But North Carolina survived against Arkansas, and so a streak has a chance at continuing: UNC's never failed to at least make the Elite Eight as a No. 1 seed under Roy Williams.

Razorbacks doing a much better job in second half limiting the Tar Heels to one shot. Carolina has yet to get an offensive rebound after grabbing 14 in the first half.

Senior guard Daryl Macon helped breathe some life back into Arkansas just when it looked like Carolina was going to run away with it. Razorbacks have to feel pretty good going into halftime down just five.
