Tar Heels return to 3-pointers just in time

It took an unexpected lineup change and some cool under pressure from gunners P.J. Hairston, Reggie Bullock and Marcus Paige, but the Tar Heels managed to get the job done – holding off Villanova 78-71 to advance into a presumed matchup with top-seeded Kansas on Sunday. The win – coach Roy Williams’ 700th of his career – extended his record of never having lost an opening-round NCAA tournament game. (Wilmington Star News)
