CHAPEL HILL - In the wake of a victory Friday afternoon, the Tar Heels were ready to attack on the court against Wake Tech. Carolina got the win on Sunday, 83-71.
The beginning of the first half, the Tar Heels took over the court, having a lead of nearly 20 points. Three-point shooting played an important role for the Tar Heels, having 58.3 percent three point shooting in the first half.
The Tar Heels led 47-34 at the half, and the remainder of the game ignited survival mode amongst the team, as Wake Tech began to close the gap in the score. With starter Learie Jones not being able to attend the game, the rest of the team had to make sure they could pull out a win.
"The second half was survival mode. We were trying to keep the lead. We took some good shots and played unselfishly," head coach C.B. McGrath said about the team.
Spenser Dalton played an integral role in keeping the lead for the Tar Heels. The freshman scored 15 points, being 4-for-7 in his three point shooting.
"I feel pretty darn good about how I played today. We had a lot of good plays and it was a great win," Dalton said.
The team pulled out yet another victory, with the final score being 83-71.
The Tar Heels have a large break ahead of them, in which McGrath says they have to stay in shape and continuously review the plays. Spenser says that the team could really work on their transition defense in the meanwhile.
The Tar Heels take on Greensboro Day School on Saturday, December 1st at 3:00 PM in the Dean E. Smith Center.
