Terps report

Yesterday at Smith Center in Chapel Hill, N.C.

BY THE NUMBERS

30-6

North Carolina’s points margin in 3-pointers made.

SHOT OF THE GAME

North Carolina forward David Noel’s 3-pointer gave the Tar Heels a 35-32 lead in the first half and ignited a 15-0 run that decided the game.

SEEN AND HEARD

LOYOLA-BOUND: Hassan Fofana, the 6-foot-10 sophomore center who left the Terps last month, has decided to transfer to Loyola. Fofana rejoins former Maryland assistant Jimmy Patsos, who now heads the Greyhounds.

TURNED AROUND: The crowd taunted Terps forward Nik Caner-Medley, chanting, “Shorts on backwards.” The corporate logo was incorrectly on his backside instead of the front.

TALKING BACK: Sophomore guard Mike Jones made his short stretch memorable. After slapping away a ball from North Carolina center Sean May under the Tar Heels’ basket, Jones angrily shouted at the fans.

LATE RISERS: The earliest tipoff of the season for the Terps resulted in a late-arriving crowd. The arena was barely a quarter filled 20 minutes before tipoff but eventually reached its capacity of 21,750.

HURTING: Forward James Gist (ankle) and guard John Gilchrist (back) were hampered by early injuries.
