Dexter Strickland and P.J. Hairston each added 14 points for North Carolina (14-6, 4-3 ACC) which has won four of its last five.

Both teams cooled off in the second half. The Eagles connected on just 41.9 percent of their shot attempts which wasn't enough to overcome the Tar Heels who turned in a 42.9 percent shooting performance in the second half.
