Thursday night's Sweet 16 game against Wisconsin was the first and last time we'll see UNC's Air Jordan XX9 hit the court this season.

Though they battled valiantly, the Tar Heels came up short in their bid to reach the Elite 8, falling to the top-seeded Badgers 79-72. UNC led 53-46 with about 10 minutes to play, but a 19-7 run gave Wisconsin momentum for the remainder of the game. Justin Jackson and Brice Johnson each had 15 points for the Heels.
