College of Charleston Upsets UNC in OT

As the students rushed the floor, UNC head coach Roy Williams was left scratching his head. The ninth-ranked Tar Heels did not play up to their standards when they blew an 11-point lead and they faltered again in OT. As a result, they lost to the College of Charleston 82-79.

The last eight points in regulation were all scored by Charleston’s Andrew Goudelock, including a three-pointer that tied the game with 2 seconds left in the period. When asked about Charleston’s surge at the end of regulation, the Cougars’ head coach Bobby Cremins told ESPN “Going on a 12-1 run with 4 minutes to go against North Carolina, usually that’s lights out. So I’ve got to watch the tape tonight to figure out what happened.”

UNC has been plagued by injury problems, but that didn’t make the loss any easier to handle. “It doesn’t feel good for us right now. It’s a tough, tough night,” said Williams. “But we’ve got to bounce back and be smarter and more effective.”

The Tar Heels better rebound quickly, as they next open their ACC play against Virginia Tech.
