Jay Huff had 18 points and 12 rebounds and No. 9 Virginia took control early, beating North Carolina for the seventh consecutive time, 60-48, on Saturday night.
Sam Hauser added 17 runs for Virginia (15-3, 11-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) and Trey Murphy III had 12 when the ACC-leading Cavaliers won their fourth in a row.
The Cavaliers led 21-4 midway through the first half as the Tar Heels missed 13 of their first 15 shots. North Carolina (12-7, 7-5) closed at half time to 27-18, but was never threatened. The Tar Heels finished just 2 for 16 from three-point area.
Virginia, meanwhile, was 10 for 22, with Hauser shooting 4 of 6 and Huff 3 of 5.
‘Sam is always a shooter who shoots light. I feel like I’ve been photographing it well lately and it’s hard to monitor, ”said Huff.
Walker Kessler led UNC with nine points. The last time no Tar Heel scored in double digits was March 4, 1966, a loss of 21-20 to Duke in the ACC tournament in Raleigh, North Carolina. John Yokley led UNC with six runs in that game.
Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said he doesn’t know why the Tar Heels fought so much against the Cavaliers.
“I have not been able to speak to all of our teams in the past. Last year we have a head start and they make it one with eight tenths of a second to go, ”he said. “The year before we played them at the Smith Center and they had to go to the video to decide that (Coby White’s) 3-pointer was not right and then they put it down and had to go to another video to see if it was good for them and both calls went their way. “
Huff, who also blocked four shots, hit three of the Cavaliers’ 12 3-pointers.
“It’s hard to simulate that in practice,” said Williams. “We don’t have four and five men on the blue team who can take all those shots like they did.”
