KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — North Carolina passed the kind of road challenge it wanted to face before starting Atlantic Coast Conference competition.
Kenny Williams sank a go-ahead 3-pointer with 35 seconds left as the seventh-ranked Tar Heels rallied past No. 20 Tennessee 78-73 Sunday.
This was the first game North Carolina (10-1) played all season that was decided by a single-digit margin. Even its lone loss of the season was a 63-45 blowout against No. 2 Michigan State.
