North Carolina and its four-guard lineup have a chance at another Atlantic Coast Conference championship — thanks in part to a Maryland guard whose last-gasp shot fell way short.
North Carolina coach Roy Williams says he's unsure whether sophomore P.J. Hairston will play at No. 1 Indiana on Tuesday night after suffering an injury to his left knee in practice.
North Carolina is reliving a 28-year-old nightmare.
Dexter Strickland doesn't seem to mind that all the attention goes to his touted North Carolina teammates. The sophomore knows the Tar Heels will have a tough time winning in the NCAA tournament without him.
Immediately after hitting a difficult shot in Washington's NCAA tournament opener, ever-confident Huskies guard Isaiah Thomas turned to the loud Georgia fans to his right, put an index finger to his lips and playfully yelled, "Shut up!"
Tyler Zeller scored 25 points while freshman Harrison Barnes had 21 to help No. 19 North Carolina beat Maryland 87-76 on Sunday night, pulling the Tar Heels into a tie with Duke atop the Atlantic Coast Conference.
North Carolina point guard Larry Drew II has left the program, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday.
"That is a great accomplishment for him and I am honored to be a part of it," said Tar Heel guard Dexter Strickland.
"He knows what type of shooter he is, and you're not going to make all your shots," Strickland said of Paige. "But he fought through it; he stepped up tonight and made some big shots for us."
