Parker Leads No. 4 Duke Past No. 14 UNC, 93-81

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Freshman Jabari Parker had a season-high 30 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 4 Duke past No. 14 North Carolina 93-81 Saturday night.

Rodney Hood added 24 points to help the Blue Devils (24-7, 13-5) end the Tar Heels' 12-game winning streak and clinch the No. 3 seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Duke never trailed, shot 51 percent - 57 percent in the second half - and dominated the ACC's best team on the glass, outrebounding North Carolina 34-20.

Marcus Paige - who led UNC's second-half comeback two weeks ago - finished this one with 24 points, while Brice Johnson had 15 and James Michael McAdoo added 13 for the Tar Heels (23-8, 13-5).

They shot nearly 60 percent but couldn't overcome their disadvantage on the glass and are locked into the No. 4 seed in the league tournament.
