March Madness 2018: North Carolina vs

North Carolinas Joel Berry II drives against Lipscombs Michael Buckland on Friday in Charlotte

North Carolina's Theo Pinson decided late in North Carolina's victory over Lipscomb that, with the game in-hand, he could break with the silent-treatment he had given Michael Buckland, a former teammate at Wesleyan Christian Academy.

The Tar Heels held Lipscomb to just 36 percent shooting from the floor and kept them under 77 points for the first time in its last 15 games.

Lipscomb finished second in the Atlantic Sun Conference with a regular season record of 10-4, then won the conference tournament over Florida Gulf Coast University to win its bid into March Madness.

The University of North Carolina men's basketball team cruised past Lipscomb 84-66 on Friday afternoon to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Answer: Lipscomb is in Nashville, Tennessee.

Against Lipscomb, Berry also became only the second Tar Heel to compile over 1,700 points, 400 rebounds and 400 assists joining only Walter Davis in that accomplishment. But North Carolina ended the first half on a 12-1 run to pull away a bit, assuaging much of the fear of the Tar Heel faithful.

Defense attorney, Rhonda Quagliana, said she was happy with the outcome, the Independent reports. Harris was accused of hitting someone following the "Unite the Right" rally on August 12.

"I said, I can finally talk to you now and I told him, 'I'm not letting you score on me, i'm going to hack you, '" the Greensboro native said.

J.P. Macura scored 18 of his career-high 29 points in the first half, and Xavier routed No. 16 seed Texas Southern in their tournament opener in the West Region.

The Tar Heels will look to advance to their fourth-straight Sweet 16 when they take on Texas A&M on Sunday in Charlotte.

Roy Williams, the fiery North Carolina coach who has won three national championships, is no stranger to the NCAA Tournament. Once we got over that hump, we were all right from there. He made 6 of 8 shots Friday and 4 of 5 3s, helping the Tar Heels shoot 52 percent while making nine 3s.

"I've been here four years, he left in three years, so it was kind of expected", Berry said. One of the nation's most productive perimeter players during the season, Elmore went for 27 points. The Aggies beat No. 10 seed Providence in the game before UNC-Lipscomb. I've never lost to a building, but this has been very comfortable for us. "But to make it as far as we have, I wouldn't have thought we would have been this good". North Carolina faces Texas A&M and its rugged frontcourt in Sunday's second round, and potential clashes with MI and Xavier loom.

"We needed to get our feet wet", he added. He knows the potential of every player on this team.
