CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Since CBS has probably switched you to Xavier-West Virginia, you probably missed the moment North Carolina officially crushed Washington State's spirit.

With his team trailing 43-27 and 13:07 remaining, Washington State guard Kyle Weaver drove and tossed up a floater. North Carolina forward Alex Stepheson, who looks like the taller, spring-loaded brother of the "We must protect this house" guy from the Under Armour commercials, elevated and slammed Weaver's shot into the floor.

On Washington State's next possession, Weaver drove the right baseline. A moment after he released another floater, Stepheson swatted the ball into the seats reserved for the Tennessee band. Almost every head on Washington State's bench drooped.
