Berry scores 26 points and Carolina defeats Butler 92-80

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) North Carolina expects strong offensive performances from junior leaders Justin Jackson and Joel Berry II, but Luke Maye provided an unexpected bonus.

Berry scored 26 points, Jackson had 24, but it was the first career double-double from Maye - 16 points and 12 rebounds - that helped set the tone early and send the top-seeded Tar Heels to a 92-80 victory over Butler in the NCAA Tournament on Friday night.

"He has the ability to shoot the ball. He has the ability to rebound the ball," North Carolina coach Roy Williams said of the sophomore forward and former walk-on. "But the reason Luke is going to be successful is what he's got in his brain and in his heart."
