Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Freshman Harrison Barnes' 3-pointer from the top of the key with 3 seconds to play gave No. 13 North Carolina a 72-70 victory at Florida State on Wednesday night.

John Henson had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Barnes added 18
points for the Tar Heels (23-6, 13-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their sixth straight game overall and their fifth in a row on Florida State's court.

North Carolina took the lead midway through the second half and
was up 67-60 on Kendall Marshall's 3-pointer with 3:59 left. Florida State rallied to take a 70-69 lead with 18 seconds left on two free throws by Derwin Kitchen, who led the Seminoles (20-9, 10-5) with 13 points.

The Tar Heels can clinch the top seed in next week's ACC
