CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Roy Williams suffered his worst home loss in 16 seasons with North Carolina as Louisville stunned the 12th-ranked Tar Heels 83-62 on Saturday.

Connecticut transfer Steven Enoch had season highs of 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Cardinals. Dwayne Sutton added 17 points and 10 rebounds while flirting with at triple-double, and Louisville (11-5, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back from a frustrating loss to long-struggling Pittsburgh.

The Cardinals jumped on the Tar Heels in the opening minutes and led nearly the entire game, turning a 43-34 halftime lead into a lopsided margin. Louisville shot 52 percent, made 11 3-pointers and finished with a 40-31 edge on the glass against one of the nation's best rebounding teams.

BOX SCORE: LOUISVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA

Kenny Williams scored 12 points for the Tar Heels (12-4, 2-1), who shot 35 percent -- including 3 of 22 on 3-pointers -- and committed 11 second-half turnovers.

BIG PICTURE

Louisville: The Pitt loss certainly was a low point considering the Panthers had lost 23 straight ACC regular-season games since February 2017 and 25 of 26 against league teams overall. The Cardinals didn't spend much time sulking, instead hitting their first seven shots with four 3-pointers in what turned into an unexpected rout and quite a win for first-year coach Chris Mack.

After getting blown out by Louisville, UNC hopes to bounce back vs. Notre Dame

After getting blown out by Louisville, UNC hopes to bounce back vs. Notre Dame Back in the day, when Roy Williams was a younger coach, the practice following a big loss would not have been pleasant. North Carolina was dominated on Saturday, losing to Louisville 83-62 at home. It was the biggest home loss since Williams became head coach at UNC in 2003. He said his goal in his younger days after a bad game was to make as many players "throw up" as much as possible. But these days, Williams said, he takes a more measured approach. Following Saturday's loss, the Tar Heels had a short practice on Sunday, and a "lengthy" film session.

UNC: It was hard to see this coming. The Tar Heels had won four straight games, the first three by at least 20 points followed by a victory at 15th-ranked rival North Carolina State on Tuesday night. Yet all that momentum vanished in a woeful performance that included bad shooting, too many turnovers, a poor performance on the glass and defense that frequently failed to beat the Cardinals to a spot.
