UNC's Luke Maye busted open after taking elbow to face

Clemson Tigers head coach Brad Brownwell reacts near the official in the first half at Dean E. Smith Center

North Carolina kept Clemson at bay by shooting 65 percent in the second half, including 64.3 percent from 3-point range.

The loss only added to Clemson's multi-generational futility in Chapel Hill, so the Tigers will now focus on Notre Dame - Saturday's opponent - and a rematch with North Carolina on January 30, this time at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Neither team excelled on offense early, and at one point it was a minutes-long stretch where neither team could score.

Wisconsin cut the deficit to 16 with 14:50 to go, then allowed a 10-2 run to make it 62-38.

"Give UNC a lot of credit".

"He has been a wonderful addition to our team", Brownell said.

So the streak lives on, another year, another class of players - seniors or, a few months from now, those departing early, even if they don't know it yet - safely emerging from their UNC careers without becoming part of that forlorn group that accidentally puts a one in that loss column. Cam Johnson has been a great addition. "It's hard to cover them all". "So that kind of ticked us off a little bit, and it's why we had so much energy tonight".

It's not often that a coach gets excited when seeing his team commit 14 turnovers and almost allowing a big halftime lead to evaporate at home. "It was a good thing we were hitting shots".

"I've never seen anything like that", North Carolina coach Roy Williams said of the Tigers' second-half surge. The Bulldogs maintained a lead for most of the first half. It was a weird game.

Nelson Installed as Head of Mormon Church
Nelson was set apart as the new president and prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He said the church will continue to provide resources and manpower, to provide aid in times of turmoil.

"Told the guys I started the season at 67, I'm going to end the season at 97". Some of the turnovers were just outrageous.

"I think we got caught up in the moment, really", Clemson's Shelton Mitchell said. They got it to a one-possession game three different times but they never got the ball with it a one-possession game. The Tigers' players are confident they can get it done. We could have done a lot better job on the defensive end. "ACC basketball, that's what it is". Clemson failed to score coming out of the timeout, and a 3-pointer by Robinson made it 18-5 as the drought continued.

Marcquise Reed scored 21 points for the Tigers (15-3, 4-2), who made 15 of 16 shots out of halftime and three times closed within two points in the final 10 minutes. Maten scored 17 of Georgia's 37 second-half points, and grabbed 12 rebounds.

Johnson drained one 3-pointer after another, making so many against Clemson that it was nearly a surprised when he missed. He's coming off his only games in double-figure scoring with 13 and 12 points in games last week.

UCF (12-6, 3-3) got seven points apiece from Tacko Fall, Terrell Allen and Dayon Griffin, but struggled the entire game to get inside the Bearcats defense. As such, Clemson trailed by 15 at the half.

Maten was held scoreless for the first 17 minutes of the game, but finished with a game-high 21 points.

UNC pushed the lead to eight at 76-68 and the Tigers had three chances to trim that margin, but missed shots pushed the time left on the clock to 2:11 with the Heels still holding the lead.

Maye hit a jumper from the key to make it 78-70, but Mitchell hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key to bring it back to five at 78-73. 1 Sooners two years ago. The Tigers couldn't get any closer the rest of the way.
