North Carolina’s 3-point shooting is arguably the biggest reason why it’s competing in the National Championship game on Monday night.

UNC is averaging a remarkable 27.8 3-point attempts per game during the NCAA Tournament. The Tar Heels have hit 36% of those tries, which has been enough to pull off upsets vs. Baylor, UCLA and Duke.

Brady Manek and Caleb Love have been especially prolific. Love was incredible in the second half vs. the Bruins and Blue Devils, scoring a combined 49 points after halftime in those contests. He also hit the dagger 3-pointer to beat Duke on Saturday night.

On the other side, Kansas doesn’t shoot many 3-pointers. The Jayhawks have attempted just 91 3-pointers during March Madness, which coach Bill Self pointed out in a press conference on Sunday.

“It’s shocking to me,” Self said at a press conference in New Orleans. “And I just noticed this this morning looking at stats. We’ve shot 91 3s as a team in the tournament. Manek and Love have shot 90 by themselves. It’s amazing.

Manek and Love’s conversion rate on those 3-pointers? A whopping 41.1 percent.

Self, who has faced Manek numerous times from his days at Oklahoma, was specifically impressed with the Tar Heels’ power forward.

“He was a threat always at OU,” Self said when asked about Manek. “But Hubert’s given him a mind, a free mind that he feels like that anytime he’s got any separation at all he needs to let it fly. And that’s a compliment to his coach and their staff, but also he’s such a good player. He’s got such a quick release. It’s a high release.”

North Carolina and Kansas will tipoff at 9:20 p.m. ET on Monday night.
