North Carolina ended LSU's season with a 84-70 victory in Greensboro, NC on Saturday in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The SEC Champion Tigers ended the season with a 27-8 record.

It will be interesting to see how first-year coach Trent Johnson follows up this season. The Tigers lose five players to graduation, including SEC Player of the Year Marcus Thornton, Garrett Temple, Chris Johnson, Terry Martin and Quintin Thornton.

Junior forward Tasmin Mitchell hopefully returns for his senior season.
