Once again, North Carolina is moving on in the NCAA Tournament at the expense of Michigan State and Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo.

RJ Davis scored 20 points to help UNC beat the Spartans 85-69 on Saturday, pushing the Tar Heels to the Sweet 16 while keeping them unbeaten in March Madness against Izzo's teams in a series going back 26 years.

Harrison Ingram made five 3-pointers and scored 17 points for the West Region’s top seed, which continued its NCAA success in its home state. The Tar Heels improved to 5-0 in the tournament against Izzo, including victories in the 2005 Final Four and 2009 title game.

And they move on to the regional semifinals in Los Angeles, where they will face Alabama on Thursday night.

It started with answering the Spartans' game-opening punch that put the Tar Heels in a 12-point hole. The response - continuing coach Hubert Davis' season-long message - was a game-defining change. The Tar Heels erased the Spartans' lead and answered every push that followed.

UNC ran off 17 straight points during a 23-3 run over the last eight minutes of the first half. And that secured the program's largest comeback in March Madness since rallying from 16 down to beat Southern California in the 2007 Sweet 16.
