According to the Associated Press, Ol’ Roy’s milestone victories are starting to blend together for No. 11 North Carolina, the 2009 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champions.

The Tar Heels gave their Hall of Fame coach his 600th career win Sunday night, an 80-73 triumph over pesky Nevada behind a career-high 23 points from Deon Thompson.

Ed Davis added 16 points, a personal-best 15 rebounds and a pair of momentum-changing blocked shots late for the Tar Heels (6-1).

The Heels endured a lengthy second-half slump before warming up down the stretch with an 11-3 spurt, then hit 4 of 7 free throws in the final minute to dodge Nevada’s upset bid and avoid a letdown two nights before a championship-game rematch with No. 2 Michigan State.

Armon Johnson scored 20 points on 10-of-20 shooting and Luke Babbitt added 15 points and 11 rebounds on 5-of-18 shooting to lead Nevada (2-3).

The Wolf Pack shot 41 percent and held the Tar Heels without a field goal for five minutes before missing 10 of their final 14 shots.
