GREENVILLE, N.C. - Many in the east have March fever because 4 teams from North Carolina are playing in the big dance.

North Carolina State, North Carolina Central, the University of North Carolina, and Duke all punched their tickets Sunday.

NC State squeezed in as one of the last four teams in. They'll play Xavier Tuesday night for a chance to move onto the round of 64.
     
The winner of that game will play Saint Louis.  

North Carolina Central rolled through the MEAC in their effort to secure an automatic bid. They'll take on Iowa State Friday as a 13-seed.

UNC earns a 6-seed. The Tarheels will play Providence in the round of 64 Friday night.

And Duke, securing a 3-seed after losing the ACC championship to Virginia, will play Mercer Friday as well.
