Game Recap | unc (5-3, 15-6) 72, Hokies (2-6, 11-10) 60

Make it three in a row for the Hokies! Three “moral” victories. After that, make it four straight losses for Coach James Johnson and his squad.

For just the second time this season, Erick Green did not score at least 20 points in a game, going more than 16 minutes without a point in the second half as the Hokies blew a 12-point first-half lead and went on to lose 72-60 in overtime in Chapel Hill.

Green finished with 16 points. For the first time since the Hokies beat then No. 15 ranked oklahoma state, and for the first time in ACC play this season, four Hokies scored in double figures. In addition to Green’s 16 points, Jarell Eddie had 15, Cadarian Raines had 12 (his second straight game with double figure scoring), and Robert Brown added 10.

Even though unc is not ranked and is having a “down” season, playing in the dean dome is never easy. The Hokies came out en fuego this afternoon. They exploded out of the gate for a quick 12-0 lead and were playing well and in sync.

Not surprisingly, however, the tar heels didn’t stay cold for long and eventually whittled away at Tech’s lead. The Hokies managed to keep the heels at bay for the first 30 minutes. unc didn’t earn its first lead of the game until midway through the second half, just about the time the Hokies hit their usual dry spell.

While James Michael McAdoo led unc in scoring with 22 points, it was freshman Marcus Paige that had the big day and was quickly inducted into the TechHoops.com Opponent Hall of Fame. Paige, who averages 6.8 points per game, scored a career-high 19 against the Hokies. He also hit a career-best four three-pointers.

The Hokies had their chances, but a combination of ice-cold shooting, poor rebounding, and some questionable no-calls in the final minutes sent the game into OT.

Green and the Hokies actually had a shot to win the game on the final possession, but he forced up a bad shot and air-balled it. unc got the rebound with 1.6 seconds left, but couldn’t convert at the other end.

OT was all unc as the heels outscored the Hokies 17-5.
