CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina rebounded from its latest loss by, well, rebounding. Three days after slipping into their deepest deficit off the glass under coach Roy Williams, the 10th-ranked Tar Heels got back to dominating the boards — and the game–in a 98-61 rout of Marshall on Tuesday night.

And the biggest impact came from some of their biggest players: Ed Davis finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds and fellow forward Tyler Zeller matched his career high with 18 points for North Carolina (9-3).

After No. 2 Texas outrebounded the Tar Heels by 21–their widest margin under their Hall of Fame coach–they held a 53-34 advantage on the glass against the Thundering Herd, who started three guards.

    If Roy would turn him loose he could do that and more every game.

    Have to watch over him or he will be suspended again.
