* North Carolina Takes 97-48 Win Over Evansville

Denver Holmes scored 14 points for the Aces, but North Carolina proved to be too much, coming away with a 97-48 win over UE Tuesday evening at the Dean Smith Center.

Harrison Barnes was the leading scorer in the contest, leading UNC (7-2) with 17 points while Holmes was the lone player in double figures for the Aces (3-4) as he tallied 14.

North Carolina shot 60% in the first half en route to a 52-22 lead at the break.  UNC dominated all facets of the game as they held UE to just 7-30 shooting, head a 26-16 rebounding advantage and forced UE into 16 fouls while committing just seven of their own.

Harrison Barnes opened up the scoring with a pair of free throws, but on the ensuing trip down the floor, Denver Holmes hit an open three-pointer to give UE a 3-2 advantage.  The Tar Heels turned up the tempo at that point, scoring the next eight points, which included three consecutive dunks to go up 10-2.

Following a timeout by the Aces, Holmes connected on his second trey to end the UNC run.  It was just a temporary stop, though, as the Tar Heels would score the next seven points on the way to their largest lead to that point, 19-7.

Evansville remained within striking distance until the final six minutes of the half.  Up 33-19, North Carolina wrapped up the half on a 19-3 run.  Harrison Barnes led all players with 14 points in the half as he hit 4-of-6 shots and six out of seven free throws.

UNC opened up the second half in the same fashion as the first, extending its lead to as many as 40 points, 62-22.  Their lead would reach as many as 51 (89-38) before the Tar Heels settled for the 97-48 win.

In the win, UNC dominated in all phases, finishing with a 62-30 rebounding advantage while outshooting the Aces by a 48.5%-25.8% margin.

Colt Ryan finished just nine points, ending a streak of 14 consecutive games where he scored in double figures.  Five UNC players hit double figures, led by Barnes with 17.  Reggie Bullock had 15 while John Henson had 13 along with a game-high 12 boards.

North Carolina A&T is up next for Evansville.  The Aggies and Aces will tangle at the Ford Center on Saturday evening at 7:05 p.m.  North Carolina A&T will enter the game with a 4-4 mark following a 65-46 loss at N.C. Central on Saturday.
