CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Harrison Barnes hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with about 5 minutes left to help North Carolina beat Clemson 75-65 on Tuesday night, staying perfect all-time against the Tigers at home.
Barnes finished with 13 points and six rebounds for the Tar Heels (13-5, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who improved to 55-0 all-time against the Tigers in Chapel Hill -- an NCAA record for most consecutive home wins against a single opponent.
Fellow freshman and Kinston native Reggie Bullock scored 16 of his season-high 18 points in the first half, while John Henson added 14 points and a key tip-in with about 2 minutes to go.
Devin Booker, Andre Young and Demontez Stitt each scored 11 points for the Tigers (13-5, 2-2), who rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half and headed into the final minutes in a tie game. Clemson didn't score in the final 4 1/2 minutes as the Tar Heels made enough plays to win it late.
