Lamar Patterson scored 16 points for Pitt, but he and fellow senior Talib Zanna combined to shoot 7-of-26 from the field, while Jamel Artis (13 points) and James Robinson (10) also scored in double figures.The Panthers led for most of the first half until Paige's four-point play with 1:52 left gave North Carolina the lead for good.

However, Robinson missed a layup, Patterson misfired on the potential tying 3-pointer and Zanna missed a follow-up to seal the Panthers' fate.GAME NOTEBOOK: McAdoo scored 12 first-half points to lead all players as the Tar Heels went into the locker room ahead 35-31. ...
