Tar Heels rip Georgia Tech 89-60 ... Developing story ...

No. 15 North Carolina opened Saturday's game by scoring on a "Four Corners" play as a tribute to the late Dean Smith, then rolled to an 89-60 win against Georgia Tech.

The Tar Heels (18-9, 9-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) had lost four of five, including Wednesday's potentially crushing failure to close out No. 4 Duke in an overtime loss.

But that "Four Corners" opening — with coach Roy Williams holding up four fingers to signal Smith's famed offense — led to Brice Johnson's layup in a sign of how smoothly things would run.

Kennedy Meeks scored 18 points for the Tar Heels, who shot 62 percent to earn an easy — and desperately needed — win after a tough stretch that had kept them away from home for nearly three weeks.

UNC led by 14 at halftime, then used a 21-3 spurt to turn this one into a rout against the Yellow Jackets (12-15, 3-12).
