CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - J.J. Mann hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 13.1 seconds left to help Belmont upset No. 12 North Carolina 83-80 on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff.
Mann finished with a career-best 28 points. His last basket gave the Bruins (3-1) an 81-80 lead. The Tar Heels (2-1) had rallied from 11 down in the second half to lead by eight with about 4 minutes left. After Mann's basket, UNC's J.P. Tokoto missed a shot for the lead from near the top of the key. Drew Windler grabbed the loose rebound and threw it ahead to Caleb Chowbay, who scored on a breakaway layup with 0.2 seconds left to seal a stunning win.
When the horn sounded, Belmont's players spilled off the bench to celebrate near midcourt.
Mann hit five 3-pointers and added nine rebounds to lead the Bruins, who hit 15 of 37 3s.
