CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Harrison Barnes scored 17 points to help No. 4 North Carolina beat Evansville 97-48 on Tuesday night.

Reggie Bullock added 15 points off the bench for the Tar Heels (7-2), who had an easy time bouncing back from their loss at top-ranked Kentucky. North Carolina ran off 10 straight points midway through the first half to blow the game open, then pushed a 30-point halftime lead to as many as 51 points in the second half.

North Carolina shot 60 percent in the first half before finishing the game at 49 percent. The Tar Heels more than doubled the Purple Aces (3-4) on the boards and held them to 26 percent shooting, including a 6-for-27 performance from 3-point range.

Denver Holmes scored 14 points and was the only player to reach double figures for Evansville.
