TAR HEELS GET OFF THE MAT TO DEFEAT WOLFPACK

NORTH CAROLINA 77, N.C. STATE 63 – Deon Thompson scored 20 points and North Carolina ended its longest losing streak in six years by beating North Carolina State Tuesday night.

Larry Drew II scored 18 points for the Tar Heels (13-7, 2-3 ACC), who snapped their first three-game losing streak under coach Roy Williams. They also finally earned their first road win, something they desperately needed to do if they had any hopes of regrouping in the final month of the regular season.

Tracy Smith scored 20 points for the Wolfpack (13-8, 2-5), who couldn't follow up last week's upset of Duke with another win against a nearby rival.
