North Carolina put up 60 first half points, outscoring the game totals for winners Georgetown and Buffalo and losers Rutgers, Kentucky, Iowa State, Hofstra, Towson, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Toledo, Maine, Air Force, Bradley and Wyoming.

The Georgetown-Rutgers game must have been particularly ugly -- a 57-47 final for a combined 104 points. Rutgers scored 18 points in the first half while the Heels scored 20 in the first six and one-half minutes.

Tyler Hansbrough moved into third place on the ACC all-time scoring list (2,572). He passed Duke's Johnny Dawkins with a jumper in the second half.

The 108 points scored by North Carolina are the fourth most by the Tar Heels in ACC play since the start of the 1996-97 season.

Wayne Ellington scored 34 points and became the 25th Tar Heel to score 30-plus on multiple occasions for his career.
