Tar Heels' defense makes the difference

Top-ranked UNC proved again that it can win without point guard Ty Lawson. It's just a slower process. With their speedy sophomore sidelined by a sprained right ankle, the Tar Heels couldn't break away from feisty Ohio State on Wednesday with their normal transition game. Instead, they used a second-half defensive stand to win 66-55, remain undefeated and secure their second straight victory in the yearly ACC-Big Ten Challenge. (Raleigh News & Observer)
