Wayne Ellington Saves North Carolina With Game Winning Overtime Three To Beat Clemson
Your almost daily roundup of college hoops ...
#2 North Carolina 90, #19 Clemson 88
The Tar Heels first big test of the season almost ended with its first loss. Wayne Ellington wouldn't let it happen. 36 points, 3 of which came at the buzzer in overtime. Great win for UNC to be able to make many mistakes and scratch out a tough road win against the Tigers.
Other games of note this weekend:
West Virginia 79, #11 Marquette 64
Bob Huggins team is legit. But he had some help this week from his friend Tim Floyd. USC's coach help Huggy Bear install a triangle-and-2 defense that left Marquette way out of sync.
#16 Villanova 64, #13 Pittsburgh 63
Prediction: First place to tenth place in the Big East will be separated by just 2 games. Good teams beating each other on their home courts all season.
