GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- John Henson had 13 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in his return from a wrist injury, and North Carolina beat Creighton 87-73 on Sunday in the third round of the NCAA tournament. Kendall Marshall added 18 points and 11 assists for the top-seeded Tar Heels (31-5), who reached the round of 16 for a record 25th time. North Carolina got off to a fast start and built a 15-point lead in the first half, then kept control of the game and pushed the margin to 19 after the break on the way to its second straight double-digit victory in the Midwest Regional. Doug McDermott scored 20 points for the eight-seeded Bluejays (29-6), who shot 41 percent and couldn't keep up with the hot-shooting Tar Heels. Henson had missed the last three games after spraining his left wrist during the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
