North Carolina wins at Georgia Tech 78-65
NORTH CAROLINA 78, GEORGIA TECH 65

By MATT WINKELJOHN
Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) -- Marcus Paige scored all but two of his 19 points
in the second half Wednesday, and James Michael McAdoo battled
foul trouble to add 17 to lead North Carolina to a 78-65 win
over Georgia Tech.

UNC (13-7, 3-4 ACC) pulled steadily away after leading just
26-25 at halftime, in a game played despite Atlanta being hit
Tuesday evening by a snow/ice storm that grid-locked much of the
region.

The injury-ravaged Yellow Jackets (11-10, 2-6) were led by Trae
Golden with 21 points, 15 in the second half.

An ESPN2 telecast was cancelled because of the inability of
ESPN's full production crew to reach the game site.

The Tar Heels had modest travel issues, and conditions Wednesday
prompted the postponement of a NBA game between the Detroit
Pistons and Atlanta Hawks in Philips Arena, less than two miles
from Tech's McCamish Pavilion.

The ACC game policy dictates that the only reason a game should
be postponed or cancelled is if the conditions affect the safety
of the teams or game officials involved.

Provided the teams and officials are able to make it to the
arena safely, games are to be played. The Tar Heels arrived in
Atlanta late Tuesday, and although they had to take a mass
transit train from the airport to near their hotel, they and
three game officials were able to get to McCamish.

Attendance was announced at 5,124 as the Pavilion appeared to be
filled roughly to one third of its capacity.

Foul trouble looked like it might become an issue for the Tar
Heels early in the second half as starting forwards J.P. Tokoto
and McAdoo picked up their fourth fouls, with 16:37 and 15:49
left in the game respectively.

North Carolina led 36-31 as McAdoo departed, however, and after
the Yellow Jackets quickly cut the margin to two-points on a
Golden 3-pointer, the visitors held steady and then re-built
their edge.

Paige scored 11 of the Heels' next 22 points and gave them a
58-48 lead on a 3-pointer with 4:50 remaining.

It didn't help the Yellow Jackets that they went ice cold from
distance, shooting just 3-for-13 on 3-point attempts. They also
were just 15 for 26 from the free throw line in the game.

The Yellow Jackets closed the first half with a 10-2 run to
trail just 26-25, and they had their defense - or the Tar Heels'
frigid shooting touch - to thank.

McAdoo had eight points and five rebounds in the half, but the
rest of the UNC roster shot just 8 for 30 (27 percent).

North Carolina leads the ACC in offensive rebounding, however,
and the Heels grabbed 10 of their own missed shots over the
first 20 minutes to earn 16 more shots than Tech (one offensive
rebound).
