North Carolina Beats Florida State 81-75

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Roy Williams earned his 300th win at North Carolina with an 81-75 win against Florida State as the Tar Heels rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to record its seventh consecutive victory.

North Carolina (18-7, 8-4 ACC) freshman Kennedy Meeks scored a career-high 23 points while Marcus Paige chipped in 20. James Michael McAdoo, who had scored double figures in 17 consecutive games, fouled out without a point.

Florida State (15-11, 6-8) switched up the starting lineup with its NCAA Tournament chances dwindling after losing 6 of 9. Ian Miller made his first start of the season and led the Seminoles with 22 points. His hot shooting out of the gate helped give Florida State a 21-6 lead. Montay Brandon finished with 18 points and Aaron Thomas added 16.
