ATLANTA (AP) -- Iman Shumpert matched his career high with 30
points and Georgia Tech held North Carolina to its fewest points in
the Roy Williams era to beat the Tar Heels 78-58 on Sunday night.
Glen Rice also matched his career high with 24 points as Georgia
Tech (8-8 overall, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended its
three-game losing streak.
North Carolina's previous scoring low in Williams' eight seasons
as coach was 60 points in a postseason NIT win over
Alabama-Birmingham last season.
North Carolina's five-game winning streak ended as the Tar Heels
(12-5, 2-1) committed 18 turnovers, leading to 25 points for
Georgia Tech. North Carolina set a season low by making only 27.6
percent of its shots from the field (16 of 58).
Harrison Barnes and John Henson each had 11 points for North
Carolina, which never led.
