Kendall Marshall banked in a shot with 10.2 seconds remaining as No. 4 North Carolina edged North Carolina State 69-67 Saturday in a rugged game to advance to the championship of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. C.J. Leslie, who led the Wolfpack with 22 points, fouled out with more than eight minutes remaining. North Carolina (29-4) lost its top scorer when Tyler Zeller picked up his fifth late in the game after scoring 23 points. But it was a couple of non-calls that sent NC State into a tizzy. Alex Johnson went flying on Marshall's drive, but there was no whistle from the officials. The Wolfpack (22-12) got one more crack with 1.2 seconds left, and Richard Howell thought he was fouled trying to get off a shot. A frustrated Howell had to be pulled away from going after an official by a couple of teammates after the play.

UNC in good shape despite losing ACC tourney

ATLANTA Selling the theory of the "good loss" to sweaty, exhausted competitors in a losing locker room is brutal. And yet there I was fighting the good fight after North Carolina's 85-82 loss to Florida State in the ACC Tournament on Sunday. As good as an easy "W" might have felt, how they lost will make them better. The Tar Heels were feisty. They fought...

Escape in Atlanta

ATLANTA – Kendall Marshall drove and banked in a pull-up jumper with 10.2 seconds to play and Justin Watts stole an entry pass on the other end to help depleted No. 1 seed North Carolina hold off No. 5 seed N.C. State, 69-67, in ACC Tournament semifinal action on Saturday.

Conference tourneys don't help top teams

NC State got screwed. ACC tournament officials basically abstained in the game-deciding final moments, an odd disappearance since until then officiating had been a PTPer in North Carolina's 69-67 victory against State. The game-winning bucket by UNC's Kendall Marshall was either a charge (my vote) or a block. Being neither was a ridiculous no-call. "Can't talk...
