Wofford took down fifth-ranked North Carolina on Wednesday night in Chapel Hill, 79-75. In doing so, the Terriers claimed their first victory over a top-25

CHAPEL HILL, N . C . — Wofford coach Mike Young walked into his postgame news conference wearing a soaked dress shirt and sheepishly drying himself with a It’s OK, coach. Beating fifth-ranked and reigning national champion North Carolina — on the road, no less — deserves a hearty celebration.


Wofford: The Terriers took advantage of their opportunity to play North Carolina without Anthony, its best player and leading scorer. In doing so, they showed why they’re dangerous. Wofford scrapped against the taller Tar Heels inside and stretched out North Carolina’s defense on the perimeter to generate plenty of open 3-point shots.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels were struggling on offense when they had Anthony, albeit against some of the nation’s best defenses. They aren’t likely to be successful this season against anyone if they have to play long stretches without him. That became obvious in the second half, when they couldn’t generate offense without his ability to drive and draw defenders.


Wofford: The Terriers play the second of four consecutive road games, staying on Tobacco Road with a trip to No. 7 Duke.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels’ grueling stretch continues with a cross-country trip. They play at No. 6 Gonzaga on Wednesday night, their fifth game in the last six against an opponent currently ranked in the top 10.
