SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio residents as a whole may not be in agreement on who'll take the title. But there's a small area where only a Tar Heel victory will do.

She shoots, and she scores! Jessica and her brother, Stevie, are creative when it comes to playing basketball. They live on Carolina Street, and they know all about the big game on Saturday. It's not hard to guess who they're rooting for.

Manuel Garza also lives on Carolina Street. He spent a good part of his childhood in North Carolina in Fayetteville. Garza thinks it's pretty ironic that after moving from North Carolina, he finds a home he loves on Carolina Street.

"It freaked me out," Garza admits. "Some friends of mine said the same thing, and I've been here for three years."

Four-year-old Christian is a big basketball fan. He lives on Carolina Street with his mom, Liz. Everyone WRAL spoke with on Carolina Street thinks Carolina's chances to win the NCAA Tournament are good. So, what will their battle cry be this weekend?

Stevie put it best. "Go Tar Heels!"
