CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Dexter Strickland scored a career-high 19 points, and North Carolina had five players reach double figures in an 85-60 rout of William & Mary on Tuesday night.
Tyler Zeller and Leslie McDonald added 14 points apiece for the Tar Heels (8-4), who bounced back from a final-seconds loss to Texas by putting the Tribe away with two notable first-half runs.
Harrison Barnes scored 13 points and fellow freshman Reggie Bullock added 11 for North Carolina, which shot nearly 44 percent and took advantage of some awful early shooting by the Tribe.
Kyle Gaillard scored a career-high 25 points on 11-of-14 shooting for William & Mary (4-7).
The Tribe shot 37 percent, but were held to one field goal during a significant stretch of more than 11 minutes of the first half, then didn't get closer than 20 points after the break and finished with 21 turnovers.
