Last-Second 3 Leaves No. 1 UNC Unbeaten
What a way for No. 1 North Carolina to start the Atlantic Coast Conference season. Wayne Ellington's 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left in overtime lifted the top-ranked Tar Heels to a 90-88 victory over 19th-ranked Clemson on Sunday night.
Ellington finished with a career-high 36 points, none more dramatic than his pullup jumper from the left side of the key with the clock winding down.
The Tar Heels leaped from the bench as Ellington pumped his fist in celebration.
Only moments earlier, Clemson freshman Demontez Stitt had hit two foul shots with 13.9 seconds to go that put the Tigers ahead, 88-87. Read more

Yes, Carolina was lucky, but which ever team had won would have been lucky. Both teams shot poorly. Clemson has been on it's way up in the ACC and the nation for a few years now, and I believe if their coaching staff stays in place, they could stay that way, but, at least at this stage, I have to say that yes, the Tigers played a very tough game AT HOME.
Heels, lucky? Yeah, but they are used to winning games like this, on the road.
I am very much looking forward to following the Tigers this year, especially when the dookie's come to town.
