Tyrese Rice and Boston College put an end to all that talk of whether No. 1 North Carolina could go unbeaten.

 

Rice scored 25 points in his second straight big game against the Tar Heels to help the Eagles stun North Carolina 85-78 on Sunday, likely ending its run atop the early season polls.

 

Rakim Sanders added 22 points for the Eagles (13-2, 1-0), who led by six points at halftime and pushed the lead to as many as 14 before holding off a frantic rally from the Tar Heels (13-1, 0-1) in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both.

 

Tyler Hansbrough scored 21 points to lead North Carolina, which shot 29 percent from the field in the second half and was just 15-for-27 at the foul line for the game.

 

North Carolina had won its first 13 games by an average of 26 points, with the closest margin being 15 points.

 

FOR BOSTON! FOR BOSTON! WE SING OUR PROUD REFRAIN!
