No. 9 UNC dominates Davidson, 98-65

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Nate Britt matched his career high with 17 points and No. 9 North Carolina rolled to a huge first-half lead to beat Davidson 98-65 on Sunday.


Justin Jackson added 15 points to help the Tar Heels (7-1) cap a big week with an easy win over the cold-shooting Wildcats (5-1). North Carolina scored the first 10 points, then used an 18-4 run to build a 25-point lead before the break.

The Tar Heels shot 51 percent for the game and led by at least 20 points throughout the second half.

It was a good finish to a week that saw the Tar Heels get senior guard Marcus Paige back from a hand injury that had sidelined him since the preseason. Paige then scored 20 points Tuesday night in a victory over No. 2 Maryland in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Jack Gibbs led Davidson with 19 points.
