Wright Hopes 'Heels Take Newark

Brandan Wright isn't saying if he will be giving UNCs' Roy Williams any tips on the lighting inside "The Rock" or the dining outside, but as the only Net with a personal rooting interest in his bracket, he's certainly watch his alma mater try to take Newark.

The Tar Heels will beat at "The Rock" this weekend playing in the East Regional while the Nets make a southern swing to visit the Hawks and Magic.  The ACC Rookie of the Year in 2007, Wright thinks Carolina has a good shot at winning it all. 

The 6'10" forward saw his first extended minutes as a Net vs. the Pacers. He says he wants to stay. On Tuesday, he joined four teammates (all signed for next year) at a Newark event for 600 season ticket-holders.
