CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Fellow senior Marcus Ginyard added 12 points as the Tar Heels
(16-14, 5-10 Atlantic Coast Conference) won consecutive games for
the first time in 2010. Coming off a surprise win at Wake Forest,
North Carolina got off to a fast start against the Hurricanes, then
used a 13-0 first-half run to go ahead for good.
Hitting the 2,000-win mark provided an achievement in an
otherwise frustrating centennial season for North Carolina, though
Kentucky already reached that milestone in December. No. 2 Kansas
has 1,997 victories heading into Wednesday's game against No. 5
The Hurricanes (18-11, 4-11) made the Tar Heels work for it,
cutting an 18-point deficit to one in the final 3 1/2 minutes.
