UNC Basketball: Tar Heels stay put in AP Top 25

R.L. Bynum Triangle Sports Network

Though UNC outscored U.Va. 15-2 in second-chance points, the Tar Heels couldn't keep up with the Cavaliers shooting from the perimeter. Francesco Badocchi, a redshirt freshman from Milan, Italy, is a legit pianist, and there just happened to be a baby grand piano at the hotel in Chapel Hill where the Cavaliers were staying.

Bianca Cuevas-Moore scored 25 points and Te'a Cooper had 20 to lead SC (17-6), which had won 13 of its past 14 games. If Roy Williams and co. wish to extend the winning streak to seven games with a home victory this weekend, what should the game plan emphasize? "We had a defensive breakdown on the first one, and Kenny (Williams) got there on the second but he fouled him". North Carolina lost Nassir Little to injury in the first half, and the young reserve didn't return for the rest of the game. He did not return.

Hunter led Virginia in scoring in the first half with 10 points on 2-2 shooting from three-point range. Just before Huff's go-ahead basket, North Carolina guard Coby White made a three-point heave from near midcourt with 3:29 to play, but officials ruled he released the ball after the shot clock had expired.

The Cavaliers got out to a fast start on the Tar Heels.

"That's the game of basketball", said White, who led the Tar Heels with 17 points despite going 6 of 19 (3 of 11) from the floor. He held the follow through a little longer than normal.

Despite all the turnovers through the first 28 minutes and all the mental lapses early in the second half North Carolina used to its advantage, Virginia coach Tony Bennett had a sense a big spark was coming from a familiar source. A three-pointer from Guy cut North Carolina's lead to four, 55-51, with 7:26 left to play, and the Cavaliers regained some momentum.

He scored 11 points in the final nine minutes to help No. 4 U.Va. (21-2, 9-2 ACC) bounce back about 48 hours after losing Saturday at home against Duke.

The run was capped off by a White 3-pointer that made it a six-point game with about 12 minutes left.

North Carolina erased its deficit after the break, but the Cavaliers recovered over the last seven minutes. "The blue-collar mentality and the chip on our shoulder really makes it easy for us to make those big shots".

UVA finished the game on a 12-2 run. Like I have a short memory shooting, we have to have a short memory as a team. UNC shot just 35 percent for the game.

Howard, averaging 16.5 points and 6.8 rebounds, scored 20-plus for the eighth time this season while becoming just the fourth United Kingdom player to reach 400 points in her freshman season.

"They didn't do anything differently", UNC's Cameron Johnson said. "They play great defense and that is what they hang their hats on".

Jerome (5-9, 2-3) added 15 points and 11 assists, one shy of his career high set against Virginia Tech earlier this season.

Guy finally gave U.Va. some breathing room with 1:57 left via a contested 3-pointer from the deep right corner that put the Cavaliers up 64-59.

Moments before Jerome's tying three-pointer, Tar Heels starting guard Cam Johnson landed on the court, holding his leg.
