WORK TO DO: Williams ‘relieved’ as Heels top Buckeyes

Even after a 82-74 win against No. 12 Ohio State, North Carolina coach Roy Williams wasn’t pleased. And why should he have been? Minutes before halftime in the opening game of the CBS Sports Classic, the No. 24 Tar Heels (8-3) looked the best they had all season. By game’s end, they were limping to the finish line, barely hanging on for the 12-point win.

And Crowder has 3,539 receiving yards heading into his final game, the Hyundai Sun Bowl Saturday against No. 15 Arizona State, 210 yards shy of Vernon’s ACC record.
