Gonzaga coach Mark Few directs his team during Saturday’s 103-90 loss at 12th-ranked North Carolina. The No. 4 Zags have lost their last two games

Gonzaga has spent the early part of the men's basketball season traveling around the country to face high-profile nonconference opponents, and coach Mark Few has no regrets.

"We made a bunch of shots", UNC coach Roy Williams said.

Cameron Johnson had 25 points and six 3-pointers while No. 12 North Carolina shot 55 percent to beat fourth-ranked Gonzaga 103-90 on Saturday night.

"It's nice, but I think the biggest thing this season is we have lost two games and can't lose anymore", Maye said. "We see everybody talking about "Carolina's defense is horrible" and all that, so we just need to show ourselves how good we can be and the potential we could play with going deep into the season".

With commitments from 5-star center Armando Bacot and 3-star guard Jeremiah Francis, North Carolina already has the base for a strong 2019 recruiting class. That included 14 offensive boards that led to a 27-0 edge in second-chance points, which proved critical on a night when neither team missed too often. Offensively, Zach Norvell Jr. had a team-high 21 points, while Josh Perkins added 20. But Gonzaga never recovered after falling behind by double figures in the first half and kept coming up a shot or two short of really upping the pressure on the Tar Heels to hold that margin after halftime.

"I've never had any of my teams play a schedule this tough", Few said. "Especially on the glass, we haven't been beaten on the glass like that all year". "I think as we go along and. the freshmen and the younger guys get up to speed with everything that we want to do and everybody gets on the same page defensively, I think we'll be all right. So, they're right there".

Missouri Tigers land Shawn Robinson, former TCU Horned Frogs QB
Bryant has only one season of eligibility remaining, paving the way for Robinson to become the starter following his departure. Robinson is the second notable quarterback to recently transfer to Missouri, joining former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant .

Gonzaga: The Bulldogs sat at No. 1 in the AP Top 25 about a week ago, but they've lost two straight - though both games were serious nonconference tests that are sure to prepare the Zags for later in the season. And UNC notably had trouble with screens in its loss at MI, just one of many frustrations that left an irked Williams to say afterward, "Right now we stink". "They earned that win". The Bulldogs are obviously closer in talent level to U of M than UNC-Wilmington, but being at home as opposed to in Ann Arbor should push the Tar Heels over the top.

Junior point guard Seventh Woods started for White last week and had seven points and three assists. I've said all along that you're going to see strides. you're going to see strides of the team just kind of finding their chemistry.

Saturday's game wasn't the Heels' first taste of that aggressive play.

Mississippi State (9-1) used a 7-0 run midway through the second half - holding the Bearcats scoreless for more than four minutes - to break a tie game and take a 52-45 lead.

North Carolina returns to action next Saturday against Kentucky in the CBS Sports Classic, while Gonzaga host Texas-Arlington on Tuesday.
