Kinston's Bullock Paces UNC Past Maryland

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Reggie Bullock scored 21 of his career-high 24 points in the first half to help North Carolina beat Maryland 62-52 Saturday.

James Michael McAdoo added 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who turned in a dominating first-half performance to build a 22-point lead at the break. Maryland (14-4, 2-3) never fully recovered from that mistake-filled first half and never got the lead below double figures after halftime, even after UNC slowed down.

Bullock scored the game's first eight points and outscored Maryland 21-20 through the opening 20 minutes, then set his career high with a straightaway 3-pointer with 5:45 left for his only second-half basket.

UNC shot 35 percent for the game, including 24 percent (8 of 34) after halftime. But the Tar Heels scored 14 points off turnovers -- all in the first half -- and Maryland finished with 21 turnovers.
