NORTH CAROLINA -- As the NCAA Tournament moves forward, two North Carolina teams are ready to fight for a place in the Sweet 16.

The Davidson Wildcats, fresh off their upset victory over Gonzaga -- the team’s first NCAA Tournament victory in 39 years -- plays No. 2 seed Georgetown at 2:50 p.m. Sunday.

Davidson pulled past Gonzaga thanks in part to 40 points from Stephen Curry -- including a 3-point shot with about a minute left in the game to give his team the lead.

Later on Sunday, No. 1-seeded UNC will look to avoid the upset bug that is flying through the tournament. The Tar Heels has no problem getting through the first round, having beaten up on Mount St. Mary’s on Friday.
