CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Tyrese Rice and Boston College put an
end to all that talk of whether top - ranked North Carolina could go
unbeaten. Rice scored 25 points in his second straight big game against
the Tar Heels to help the Eagles stun North Carolina 85 - 78 on
Sunday, likely ending its run atop the early season polls.
Rakim Sanders added 22 points for the Eagles,13 - 2, 1 - 0, who
led by six points at halftime and pushed the lead to as many as 14
before holding off a frantic rally from the Tar Heels, 13-1, 0-1,
in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both.
Tyler Hansbrough scored 21 points to lead North Carolina which
shot 29 percent from the field in the second half and was just
15 for 27 at the foul line for the game.
North Carolina had won its first 13 games by an average of 26
points with the closest margin being 15 points.
