WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Sports bars were packed as the Tarheels took the court Friday night, hoping to make it to the Elite Eight.

While it was mostly UNC fans, there were some Ohio University Bobcats there as well.

Fox and Hound managers say March Madness is a great boost for business, especially when North Carolina teams are playing, and fans from both teams were excited to watch the action.

In the end, the Tar Heels won.
