No. 19 North Carolina beats Boston College 81-63 in ACCs

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) North Carolina's players were in no mood for a repeat of last year's brief stay at the Atlantic Coast Conference, and they didn't want to watch Boston College's Olivier Hanlan have another big game against them.

Instead, the No. 19 Tar Heels slowed Hanlan and led most of the day to beat the Eagles 81-63 on Wednesday in the second round of the tournament, a much better debut in Greensboro than the one-and-done exit of a year earlier.

"Coach (Roy Williams) didn't talk about it a lot but I brought it up today as we coming to the gym, that we lost the first day we played last year," junior Marcus Paige said. "That it was bad and we went straight back home. I was telling the guys, `You don't want that feeling.'"
