— No. 13/11 North Carolina came up just short in a 94-91 loss at Georgia Tech on Thursday from the McCamish Pavillion.

North Carolina (17-6, 5-4 ACC) received a balanced attack with three players scoring at least 20 points. Diamond DeShiels had 22 points, nine rebounds and five assists before fouling out with 2:44 left. Allisha Gray notched her third double-double of the year with 20 points and 11 rebounds, and Danielle Butts set a new career high with 20 points.

Tyannua Marshall scored 32 points to set Georgia Tech's scoring record, while Kaela Davis had 20 points.

An entertaining first half saw four lead changes, two ties and Carolina make a late push to take a slim, 44-43, lead at intermission.

The Yellow Jackets took their largest lead of the first half, 36-27, on a jumper from Marshall at the 7:45 mark. She led Tech with 13 points in the opening stanza.

North Carolina got right back in the game with a 12-0 run, led by DeShields' eight of her 17 first-half points, erasing an eight-point defecit that turned into a 43-39 advantage.

North Carolina trailed by seven points with 1:51 left, but pieced together eight-straight points to take a 90-89 lead with 36 seconds to go.

Davis gave Tech the lead right back, but UNC's Latifah Coleman had the opportunity to tie the game with a pair of free throws with six seconds left. She missed the first of two foul shots, but made the second to make it 92-91 in favor of the Yellow Jackets.

Carolina nearly stole the inbounds pass as Butts had her hand on the ball for a brief second, but Marshall came up with the loose ball and made two free throws to ice the victory and become Georgia Tech's all-time leading scorer.

North Carolina visits No. 5 Duke on Monday at 7 p.m.
