No. 7 North Carolina Beats Rival NC State 86-74

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Kendall Marshall had a career-high 22 points and 13 assists to help No. 7 North Carolina beat North Carolina State 86-74 on Tuesday night.

Harrison Barnes added 20 points for the Tar Heels (24-4, 11-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who extended their domination of their nearby rivals. North Carolina has won 12 straight meetings and hasn't lost to the Wolfpack (18-10, 7-6) in five years.

The Tar Heels shot 51 percent, including 10 for 19 from 3-point range. And Marshall was a big reason for that success, whether he was knocking down outside shots against sagging defenders or finding teammates for baskets.

    State needs to drop down to Sun Belt or CUSA. They are non-competitive in ACC and have been for some time. Please spare me 1983..ancient history.

      I think you are wrong...they are on the upswing with the new coach and played their hearts out the other night.
