No. 10 UNC Routs Marshall, 98-61

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Ed Davis had 19 points and 10 rebounds while fellow big man Tyler Zeller matched a career high with 18 points to lead No. 10 North Carolina past Marshall 98-61 on Tuesday night.

Marcus Ginyard and Deon Thompson added 14 points apiece and Will Graves had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels (9-3).

They shook off a sloppy start and broke open a surprisingly close game by scoring 18 straight points early in the second half and holding Marshall without a field goal for roughly 5 1/2 minutes.

Shaquille Johnson had 16 points and Tyler Wilkerson added 12 for Marshall (9-2). The Herd had their seven-game winning streak snapped, and were denied their first victory against a ranked team since beating then-No. 9 West Virginia in 2006.
