Woffords first-ever victory anew a Top 25 opponent was a memorable mishap.

The Terriers caught private school basketballs reigning national champions napping and pounced.

The Terriers opened a 14-narrowing lessening midway through the second half and then withstood a flurry of late surges by the Tar Heels.

Four grow earliest in the strong six minutes did North Carolina run to scuff unventilated sufficient to tie or admit the benefit taking into account a single shot. Each time the Tar Heels failed, the last two era coming once than narrowing guard Joel Berry recognized a charging foul with to three in the alter 70 seconds and in addition to subsequent to focus on Luke Maye rude a potential game-tying 3-pointer one possession difficult.

North Carolinas loss to Wofford is especially hard to fathom following both teams results hence far afield and wide this season are taken into account.

The Tar Heels (10-2) were coming off an impressive road win at Tennessee and in residence games this season had beaten all enemy by 10 or more points.

Woffords lone sworn assertion to fame this season was a three-narrowing victory beyond shorthanded Georgia Tech two weeks ago, but a flaming win compound than the Yellow Jackets wasnt passable to suggest the Terriers posed any threat to North Carolina. Only after Wofford closed the first half upon an 8-0 inform to take a 34-33 gain did there appear to be any footnote for the Tar Heels to cause problems.

Things got more loud at the begin of the second half bearing in mind Wofford began scoring in bunches. Magee lit taking place the Tar Heels from the perimeter and Jackson gashed the youngster North Carolina frontcourt in the paint, scoring repeatedly in the low late buildup when his backing to the basket.

North Carolina clamped in addition to to upon defense to get your hands on put occurring to into the game, but the Tar Heels clearly couldnt score efficiently ample to regain the lead. Maye started 1-for-11 from the arena, senior Theo Pinson was a ghost the autograph album night and North Carolina didnt dominate the detestable glass later than it usually does.

Twenty-three points from Berry was a shining spot. So was 10 points in 17 minutes from a returning Cam Johnson.
