UNC 102 Tennessee State 69
North Carolina shot 62.1% from the floor and 61.1% from behind the three point line to roll past Tennessee State 102-69 on Tuesday. The win moves the Tar Heels to 4-0 on the season.
Reggie Bullock scored 23 points going 6-7 from threes to lead the Tar Heels. Meanwhile, Harrison Barnes and John Henson knocked down 16 points in the win. Kendall Marshall was a floor general in this one dishing out 15 assists falling only three short of Raymond Felton's record of 18. 12 players got into the scoring column for Carolina.
North Carolina led at halftime 55-42 but opened things up in the second half out scoring the Tigers 47-27 in the second half. It is the second time Carolina hit the century mark.
Bullock's three point shooting is a welcome sight as some point to North Carolina's perimeter game as their only weakness. The Heels have struggled early on from behind the three point arch. With Leslie McDonald out for the season, the Heels will depend on Bullock to provide outside shooting.
The game was part of the Las Vegas Invitational. With the victory Carolina moves to the semifinals against South Carolina in the semifinals from Las Vegas on Friday.
Kellen Thornton led Tennessee State with 15 points on the night.
