RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Marcus Paige hit a driving basket with 0.9 seconds left to cap a career night and help No. 19 North Carolina beat North Carolina State 85-84 in overtime on Wednesday.

The Tar Heels were down 11 points in the first half and by six with 2 minutes left in overtime, , but clawed back to win in a classic finish between nearby rivals.
