9th-ranked Tar Heels Down 15th-rated Louisville

History says UNC needs a veteran point guard to win titles. Can Coby White rewrite

History says UNC needs a veteran point guard to win titles. Can Coby White rewrite

Conversely, it's been a great week for North Carolina's women's team.

The Tar Heels shot 13.1% from three-point range, were outrebounded by the widest margin they'd been all season and got a modest 19 points from the senior duo of Luke Maye and Cameron Johnson as Louisville cruised to an 83-62 blowout that kickstarted a six-game winning streak for the Cardinals and left UNC fans wondering if they had overestimated this team's ceiling in a historically deep ACC.

The Tar Heels controlled rebounding, the inside and just about everything else Saturday to show how far they have come since their previous meeting with the Cardinals. The victory comes on the heels of an upset of then-No.

No. 1 BAYLOR 96, TEXAS TECH 37: In Waco, Texas, Kalani Brown dominated inside with 23 points on nine layups, adding free throws on five of those after being fouled as the Bears (19-1, 9-0 Big 12) won their 32nd consecutive Big 12 game. "The team is playing great basketball. We want more. We want to keep it rolling".

But even as it continued its winning ways, coach Wes Moore suggested that he feared a loss might be in the works because of the way his team's offense has sputtered in recent games.

No. 3 LOUISVILLE 76, CLEMSON 44: In Clemson, South Carolina, Jazmine Jones tied her career high with 17 points to lead the Cardinals, who followed up their win over No. 2 UConn. They gave up 69 points in their win over Louisville and will need another solid performance to get past the Wolfpack on Tuesday. "Y'all are good. We've just got to get over the hump a little bit'". "We didn't do that last time and I thought we did that today".

Taliban To Join Moscow Talks Without Afghan Government Officials
President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed his desire to bring USA troops home, adding to the urgency of Khalilzad's mission. A statement from Ghani's office charged that Afghan politicians attending the gathering were doing so "in order to gain power".

NC State was embarrassed by Virginia Tech in their last game and managed to score 24 total points in the game, making it the fewest points scored by a ranked team in the shot clock era. It's tough because you don't have a lot of subs and depth in practice, so you're tempted to pace yourself.

Trailing by just one at 32-31 but having difficulty scoring from the perimeter, UNC changed its strategy in the second half by pounding the ball inside to Bailey.

Not only did State shoot poorly in the period, but it was also forced into six turnovers by the UNC defense. Those five points were the start of a 10-3 spurt that extended the lead to 75-66 with 81/2 minutes to go.

"It felt like it was on line", Watts said. Kerry Blackshear had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Nickeil Alexander-Walker added 11 points for the Hokies (18-3, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).

"I don't feel like there was pressure", said N.C. State's Erika Cassell, who had 12 rebounds.

The Wolfpack have lost their last two games and will try to snap their losing streak when they play the Tar Heels on Tuesday. "It's just something for us to bounce back from".
