No. 12 UNC takes out No. 15 NC State

The Tar Heels turn the ball over too much and are making do without a true post option but Roy Williams’ team still knows how to beat N.C. State.

Senior Luke Maye scored 21 points to lead the 12th-ranked Tar Heels to a 90-82 win over the 15th-ranked Wolfpack on Tuesday night.

The Tar Heels (12-3, 2-0 ACC) turned the ball over 23 times, surely too many for Williams’ taste.

But UNC used a 51-33 advantage on the glass and some unselfish passing (20 assists on 29 field goals).

Funderburk added 13 points with a boost from freshman Jericole Hellems and the Wolfpack had a 35-0 bench scoring edge in the first half.

Bryce at midcourt, on one of three lollipop passes that N.C. State’s press swiped, set up Funderburk for a dunk at 8:44 and cut UNC’s lead to 29-22.
