CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Leslie McDonald scored 14 points and No. 20 North Carolina held East Tennessee State to 12 points in the first half of a 78-55 rout Saturday night.

Freshman Brice Johnson added 12 points for the Tar Heels (7-2). They shot 42.9 percent and used a 34-2 run to put the overmatched Buccaneers out of this one early, needing only about 15 minutes to go up by 30.

Rashawn Rembert scored a career-high 18 points and Lester Wilson added 13 points on 5-of-19 shooting with 11 rebounds for ETSU (2-5). Its halftime point total was the fewest for a half in the nearly 27-year-old Smith Center.

Reggie Bullock added 10 points for the Tar Heels, who won their second straight since an ugly loss at No. 1 Indiana.
