No. 10 Tar Heels Beat No. 9 Spartans 89-82

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Ed Davis scored a career-high 22 points Tuesday night to help No. 10 North Carolina beat No. 9 Michigan State 89-82 in a rematch of last season's national championship game won by the Tar Heels.

Larry Drew II had a career-best with 18 points for the Tar Heels (7-1), who led most of the game before having to hold off a rally in the final minutes. North Carolina shot 58 percent and led by as many as 19 points early in the second half, beating Michigan State (5-2) for the second straight year in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Raymar Morgan scored 18 points to lead the Spartans, who were 2 of 20 from 3-point range.

The teams met twice last season at Detroit's Ford Field, with North Carolina beating Michigan State by 35 points in the first meeting followed by an 89-72 win in April for the program's fifth NCAA championship.
