UNC also won despite playing the last 12-plus minutes without leading scorer Cameron Johnson, who exited with leg cramps. After being held scoreless in first half (in only 7 minutes), Johnson finished with 11 points in 18 minutes in the second half.

Common sense says the second-year N.C. State coach is right.

North Carolina scored the first 12 points of the game with N.C. State not scoring until almost four minutes elapsed. But UNC's reserves, as well as it other seniors - Maye and Williams - stepped up in Johnson's absence. Freshman wing Leaky Black answered with a mid-range jump shot, which started a 9-0 run, and UNC took comfortable 10-point lead with less than six minutes left to play.

"They've given me tremendous effort everyday and they're fighting", Keatts said.

"I was really mad at them at one point", he said. The rest of the way, it would add nine more, reopening the door for a comeback from N.C. State late in the contest. He also twice had huge baskets immediately after N.C. State tied the game, first a 4-point play and later a 3-pointer that kept UNC in control.

The 2018-19 has so far been a solid one with a few warts for the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball program, as they now sit with an 11-3 record.

"It shows we're tough", Maye said. "Next man up" is what coach preaches all the time.

"Our schedule, we play really good teams".

Fury over Darling fish deaths
In mid-December, more than 10,000 fish died in a stretch of the river a little farther upstream , the Guardian reported. Critics have blamed state and federal governments for "throwing out the window" policies which protected the river.

The offense was sparked by Braxton Beverly, who hit five of seven three-pointers for a career-high 21 points. We went into the game saying that we wanted to get as many touches as we can and spread out the shooters, but we didn't do that. "It's wonderful to play in front of them". Along with the win over No. 15 N.C. State, UNC has beaten then-No. 7 MI on the road, and then-No. All others, including games against Kentucky and Gonzaga, have been on neutral courts.

The puzzling 80-72 loss to Kentucky on December 22, in which the Tar Heels had little energy and were out-hustled, now appears to be a thing of the past, as UNC has opened up ACC play with two wins on the road. Its next game is at home against Louisville on Saturday. "I like that, but now put that behind you and be ready to get better the next day in practice".

In terms of pace, North Carolina is fourth in possessions per game (80.8) in the nation and N.C. State is 24th, at 77.2 possessions per game.

The Tar Heels came out of the locker room sluggish and allowed the Wolfpack to tie the score. But the Tar Heels overcame it as a group.

The Wolfpack won seven straight games after the loss to Wisconsin.

Throughout the early parts of the season, the Wolfpack was actually very strong on the glass and had a top-10 rebounding margin in the country. The Wolfpack shot 28.6 percent from 3 and 42.5 percent from the floor overall.

The Wolfpack never led on Tuesday. He'd be hard for UNC to replace if he was sidelined for a long period of time.

"Heckuva night", coach Williams said.
