North Carolina 79, Maryland 68

On Senior Night at the Comcast Center, the Maryland Terrapins (20-10, 8-9) were unable to control the duo of P.J. Hairston (22 points) and Reggie Bullock (19 points) as North Carolina (22-8, 12-5) defeated Maryland. 

With forward James Michael McAdoo in foul trouble early in the game, the Tar Heels duo stepped up and led Roy Williams' team to their sixth consecutive victory.

The victory gives the Tar Heels a chance to have the same ACC record as rival Duke if they win in Chapel Hill on Saturday night.

Going into their clash on Sunday with Virginia, Maryland is in need of a win to keep any hope of making the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament alive.
