#7 NORTH CAROLINA 93, GEORGIA TECH 81 - Harrison Barnes scored 23 points and North Carolina hit 10 3-pointers in a lopsided victory over Georgia Tech on Sunday that ended a four-game losing streak to the Yellow Jackets.

Tyler Zeller added 17 points for the Tar Heels (18-3, 5-1 ACC), who have won 12 of 13 games and extended their school-record home winning streak to 31 games. North Carolina shot 54 percent, led by 20 points at halftime and by 24 in the second half of a win that moved the Tar Heels into a tie with Duke and Florida State atop the ACC standings.

John Henson had 13 points and Reggie Bullock added 11 for the Tar Heels, while Kendall Marshall had 12 assists.

The outside shooting was the most obvious development for UNC. They hit 10 of 16 shots from behind the arc, their best total in a league game and one off a season high.

Barnes hit all three of his 3-point tries, while Bullock went 3-for-6 on the way to 11 points in his second straight start. Freshman P.J. Hairston added two more 3s against the Yellow Jackets (8-13, 1-6).
MIAMI 76, BOSTON COLLEGE 54 – Malcolm Grant scored seven of his 16 points during a game-breaking 14-0 run and Durand Scott had four of his 19, carrying Miami to a win over Boston College on Sunday.

Kenny Kadji finished with 14 points and seven boards for the Hurricanes (12-7, 3-3 ACC) and Reggie Johnson added 12 points.

Matt Humphrey had 13 points to lead Boston College (7-14, 2-5). The Eagles have lost four straight since beating Clemson and Virginia Tech in consecutive home games earlier this month.

The game was tied at 49 before Miami took control by scoring the 14 unanswered points.

The Hurricanes outscored Boston College 27-5 over the final 7 minutes.

Grant's 3-pointer from the top of the key - the Hurricane's first of the second half - pushed Miami ahead 52-49 with 6:17 to play.
