MSU Loses to North Carolina

Top ranked Michigan State lost its first game of the season in men's basketball Wednesday night, dropping a 79-65 decision in the Breslin Center to North Carolina. It was the first home loss to an unranked non conference team in more than a decade. MSU will fall in the polls next week. Carolina is now 5-2 with a win over third ranked Louisville but losses to Belmont and UAB. The Tar Heels never trailed after taking a 20-6 lead. It was 32-32 at halftime and 49-all with 11:35 to play but a 12-1 run late gave Carolina a 65-52 lead and the Tar Heels never looked back. Gary Harris led MSU with 17 points and Adreian Payne scored 12 of his 16 in the first half. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
