UNC moves closer to ACC top seed with 85-67 dismantling of Pitt
— No. 8 North Carolina moved one step closer to earning the top seed in the ACC tournament, and potentially a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, Saturday as they dominated Pittsburgh, 85-67.
The Tar Heels won about every statistical category, including pulling down a season-high 24 offensive rebounds and claiming a 48-28 overall edge on the glass.
UNC will be at No. 18 Virginia Monday before hosting Duke to close out the regular season. The Tar Heels need to win just one of those games to clinch the ACC's No. 1 seed.
