No. 14 North Carolina Rolls Past Rival NC State 107-56

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.  --  Justin Jackson scored 21 points and No. 14 North Carolina ran off a 20-0 first-half run to blow Sunday's game open and beat North Carolina State 107-56.
 
Joel Berry II added 19 points for the Tar Heels (14-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who beat the Wolfpack for the 20th time in 22 games in a game postponed from Saturday night because of a snowstorm and icy roads.
 
And the Tar Heels did it in an unexpectedly lopsided fashion, jumping to a 26-4 lead and pushing that to 56-23 by halftime on Jackson's 3-pointer just before the horn.
 
N.C. State (12-4, 1-2) came in with momentum after blowing out No. 21 Virginia Tech behind a triple-double from star freshman point guard Dennis Smith Jr. But Smith got in quick foul trouble Sunday, while the Wolfpack committed a bevy of turnovers that fueled the Tar Heels' attack.
