Terps Shock Heels 82-80

Bambale Osby dropped to the court with his hands covering his face. He knew his basket had given Maryland the lead late. He heard the horn as North Carolina's final desperation shot clanged off the rim.

Yet he still couldn't believe it.

"It didn't feel real, man," Osby said. "It was like, 'Did this really just happen?"'

The same could be said of the top-ranked -- and formerly unbeaten -- Tar Heels.

Osby's layup with 21 seconds left helped Maryland stun North Carolina 82-80 on Saturday, giving the Terrapins a shocking win that will likely end the Tar Heels' run atop the polls.

James Gist finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Terrapins (12-7, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who blew an 11-point lead midway through the second half but still held on in a back-and-forth finish to win here for the first time in five years.
