Harrison Barnes scored 13 points and fellow freshman Reggie Bullock added 11 for North Carolina, which shot nearly 44 percent and took advantage of some awful early shooting by the Tribe.

Kyle Gaillard scored a career-high 25 points on 11-of-14 shooting for William & Mary (4-7).

MIAMI 69, Oral Roberts (Golden Eagles, 3,200 students, Tulsa, OK) 56 – Malcolm Grant scored 15 points to lead Miami to victory victory over Oral Roberts at the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Classic.

Dominique Morrison led the Golden Eagles (4-7) with 20 points, while Damen Bell-Holter had 16 points and nine rebounds.

Presbyterian (Blue Hose, students, Clinton, SC) 66, WAKE FOREST 64 – Khalid Mutakabbir’s reverse layup with 8.5 seconds left gave Presbyterian a 66-64 victory over Wake Forest on Tuesday night.

The Blue Hose then held on when Wake Forest’s C.J. Harris missed a jumper in the lane at the buzzer.

It was Presbyterian’s first win in nine tries against ACC opponents. Al’Lonzo Coleman led Presbyterian (6-6) with 20 points. Mutakabbir scored 14, Pierre Miller scored 11 and Walt Allen scored 10.
