Terry leads Tar Heels into semifinals

Reyshawn Tery scored 24 points to help North Carolina hang on and beat Virginia 79-67. Terry helped thwart a strong showing by the Cavs led by their first team All-ACC selection Sean Singletary. Singletary scored 29 points and brought down 10 rebounds to easily lead Virginia in both categories. Wes Miller also played well for North Carolina. He scored 15 points and never missed a shot going a perfect 4 for 4 from the floor and from the free throw line. North Carolina's defense held Virginia to just 28% shooting for the game, and the Tar Heels regained the edge on the glass, outrebounding Virginia 43-36 and only allowing 4 second-chance points in the second half after giving up 12 putbacks in the first half. The Tar Heels will advance and face the winner of the Maryland-Boston College game.
