North Carolina's season ends in NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16

At times this season, North Carolina looked like a team that could battle with, and even beat, just about anybody. At others, the Tar Heels were prone to concentration lapses, wavering intensity and turnovers at critical times. It's why the season that ended with Thursday's loss to Wisconsin was such a mixed bag.
