TAR HEEL DRINKING GAME UPDATED AND OTHER ACC GAMES

FLORIDA STATE 77, NORTH CAROLINA 67 – The special silver Nike/Jordan uniforms looked cool, but they didn’t help UNC stop thier skid (drink) as FSU’s Chris Singleton scored 19 points and the Noles hit 11 three-pointers (drink) while beating the Tar Heels (drink) Wednesday night.

Deividas Dulkys scored 17 and hit five treys off the bench to help the Seminoles (20-7, 8-5 ACC) post a 20-win season (any mention of 20 win season - drink twice) and guarantee themselves at least a break-even record in league play. Both could be critical for their NCAA tournament (any mention of Big Dance - drink twice) chances.

It was Florida State's first win in Chapel Hill since 2000 (drink) and marked the first time in 13 years that the Seminoles have won two straight in a series long dominated by the Tar Heels.

The Seminoles controlled this one from the start, going 9-for-15 from 3-point range in the opening half (drink) and capitalizing on repeated turnovers to open a 48-33 lead at the break.

Derwin Kitchen had 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Seminoles.

Will Graves scored 21 points to lead North Carolina (14-14, 3-10) (drink, drink, drink). The Tar Heels shot 42 percent and got as close as nine points in the final minute.

Jack Bauer (drink 24 times).

See, all better now.
