  UNC star Anthony out indefinitely with knee injury North Carolina star Cole Anthony will be out indefinitely with a knee injury, the school announced prior to Sunday's game against Wofford. Treatment plans will be evaluated and determined over the next few days. The loss of Anthony is a big blow to a Tar Heels offense that's already struggling to score. The freshman guard is averaging a team-high 19.1 points while also contributing 6.3 boards, 3.6 assists, and 1.9 steals per contest.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — This was the noise, the roar, the sound that would have dared anyone to put the words “wine” or “cheese” next to it. As North Carolina started to chip away at a second-half lead, the fans stomped their feet and screamed and rattled the girders atop Carmichael Arena as if three decades had never passed.

It wouldn’t have been the first come-from-behind win in this building, but the crowd was trying desperately to urge the Tar Heels to a comeback against not Maryland or Georgia Tech or N.C. State or Duke but Wofford. On this otherwise retro Sunday, that was very, very 2019.

Wofford shocks depleted No. 17 North Carolina, 68-64

  Wofford shocks depleted No. 17 North Carolina, 68-64 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Wofford traveled to Chapel Hill and shocked a ranked North Carolina team again, getting 19 points from Trevor Stumpe and riding a 16-0 run in the second half to a 68-64 win over the 17th-ranked Tar Heels on Sunday. Storm Murphy added 15 points and Messiah Jones had 13 points for the Terriers (7-4), who went on the road to beat North Carolina for the second time in three years. Wofford, a 12-point underdog, made four 3-pointers during its decisive spurt, a 6-minute stretch in which the Tar Heels missed 10 consecutive shots.BOX SCORE: WOFFORD 68, NO.

All the concern over who was going to score for North Carolina other than Cole Anthony suddenly seemed very quaint when Anthony watched the 68-64 loss to the Terriers in a suit from the bench.

What should have been a heartwarming return to the Tar Heels’ former home became the starting point for a heartrending and potentially heartbreaking voyage into the bitter unknown after Anthony was declared out indefinitely with a knee injury, especially with Leaky Black standing next to him in a walking boot.

“It’s tough for a lot of reasons,” UNC guard Brandon Robinson said. “I can’t really explain them all. But I felt like we tried. We tried the hardest we tried all year.”

Either Anthony or Black or both figured in almost half of North Carolina’s offensive possessions over the first nine games, which is the statistical way of saying the Tar Heels were in deep, deep trouble Sunday and figure to be in equally deep trouble for the foreseeable future.

North Carolina was within 70-69 when Wofford 's Nathan Hoover drained a 3-pointer at the 3:48 mark. A charging call on Berry came before a shot-clock violation on Wofford gave the Tar Heels the ball back with 32 seconds to play, but Maye missed a 3-pointer from the wing coming out of a timeout.

No. 5 North Carolina upset at home by Wofford . The Terriers led by as many as 13 with 12:26 remaining but the Tar Heels closed the gap to one point with 1:22 left in the game. UNC took 38 free throws in the game compared to 18 for Wofford , but the Tar Heels missed 10 of them (73.7%).

Their combined absence left 24 points on the bench for a team that was already struggling mightily to score: outside, inside, transition, whatever. It wasn’t just that the Tar Heels couldn’t shoot to this point. The easy points that North Carolina relies upon as a matter of course, the big men beating the opposition down the court for easy buckets on the break, the offensive rebounds for and-one putbacks, those weren’t coming easily, if at all.

It was a lot of baggage to carry across campus to play against Wofford, a team already on a one-game winning streak in Chapel Hill, even with Anthony and Black. Let alone without them.

So with K.J. Smith at the point — his father, Kenny, started the previous regular-season game at Carmichael, against N.C. State in January 1986 — the Tar Heels staggered into this new uncertainty. What at times had devolved — and at times, like the second half against Notre Dame, evolved — into a one-man team was now anyone’s team, with little-used players like Smith and Jeremiah Francis and Andrew Platek asked to assume major roles.

North Carolina led by as many as 12 points in the first half before settling for a 33-26 edge at the break. Wofford didn’t score in the game’s opening 4:39, but the Tar Heels held only a 4-0 lead. This was North Carolina ’s first visit to Wofford , which last year conquered Georgia Tech in a home game.

“We’re going to benefit in the long run from it, but it doesn’t make it any easier to go through right now for sure,” Roy Williams said.

The persistent failure of UNC’s non-Anthony players to assert themselves had to this point been an existential question; by the time Wofford went on a 16-0 run in the second half to take a lead it would not relinquish, it was now a very real and very pressing problem.

This already had the feel of 2014, when the Tar Heels had one reliable shooter (Marcus Paige) and several square pegs forced into round holes. On this throwback Sunday, with the Tar Heels wearing old-school uniforms and playing in the school’s old gym, it started to feel like a less memorable season: 2010, when injuries submarined the season and the Tar Heels opened the NIT on this same floor.

It doesn’t get any easier, either: The Tar Heels face a cross-country flight to play powerful Gonzaga on Wednesday, almost certainly without Anthony and possibly without Black, who is officially “game to game.” Black hurt his foot against Michigan and tried to play through it until it started getting worse. Anthony, who injured his right ankle in the Bahamas, came into the Smith Center on Friday with a swollen right knee and was shut down after being examined by doctors.

What makes you think I'm upset ? OOGWAY: So why are you upset ? PO: I probably sucked more today than anyone in the history of kung fu I mean, I'm not like The Five. I've got no claws, no wings, no venom. Even Mantis has those thingies. Maybe I should just quit and go back to making noodles.

The crowd lucky enough to be in Carmichael on Sunday arrived full of nostalgia and optimism and left full of disappointment and trepidation. The Tar Heels were having trouble finding their way with Anthony. Now losers of three straight and four of their past five, where are they headed without him? Maybe back here in March.

Sega's Genesis Mini is just $45 today .
Following years of shoddy third-party consoles, Sega took matters into its own hands and produced a replica console worthy of the Genesis name. The Genesis Mini has everything we look for in a miniature: a faithful design, a great collection of games and solid performance. It scored 89 in our review back in September, with praise for its large selection of titles, faithful emulation, high build quality and intelligent interface. The only negatives we found were the controllers (they're fine, but we would've liked to see the six-button rather than the three-button controllers) and that some games don't quite hit the mark.
