No. 6 Tar Heels Roll Past NC Central 89-42

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Marcus Ginyard matched his career high with 17 points to help No. 6 North Carolina beat North Carolina Central 89-42 on Wednesday night in the 2K Sports Classic.

Deon Thompson scored 13 for the Tar Heels (2-0), who broke it open with 21 straight first-half points. North Carolina shot 69 percent in the half and 59 percent for the game, dominating the transitional Division I Eagles from nearby Durham in the teams' first meeting.

The game marked the coaching debut for LeVelle Moton at Central, where he ranked third on the school's career scoring list. C.J. Wilkerson led the Eagles (0-1) with 16 points, though they shot just 26 percent.

Ginyard, a fifth-year senior, turned in another strong performance after missing most of last season with a foot injury.
