Isaiah Hicks led UNC with 16 points on 7 of 8 shooting from the floor. It matched his season high (also 16 at Tulane).

Joel Berry II had a season-high six assists but was 1 for 9 from the floor (0 for 5 3FGs). His previous high for attempts without making a three-pointer was four against Syracuse in the 2016 national semifinal.
