NEWARK, Del.-- Tierra Ruffin-Pratt scored a career-high 30 points, and third-seed North Carolina squeezed past Albany 59-54 Sunday to stagger into the second round of the NCAA tournament.

North Carolina trailed 28-23 at halftime and 48-44 with just under 10 minutes left before rallying behind Ruffin-Pratt, who scored 17 of the Tar Heels' final 21 points -- including two clinching free throws with 10.8 seconds left.
