North Carolina 96, Boston College 66

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Luke Maye had career highs of 32 points and 18 rebounds while No. 20 North Carolina's small lineup got off to a fast start in a 96-66 win against Boston College on Tuesday night.

Cameron Johnson added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who were trying to avoid their first three-game losing streak since January 2014. UNC coach Roy Williams juggled his starting lineup to move in Johnson over freshman forward Garrison Brooks - and that wing-heavy unit responded by getting out in transition and on the attack in their active opening minutes.

Maye became the first North Carolina player with at least 30 points and 15 rebounds at home since Antawn Jamison in 1997-98, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

UNC ran off an early 12-0 burst to go ahead for good, then relentlessly attacked the boards to address one of Williams' primary concerns with going small for long stretches.

Ky Bowman scored 21 points to lead Boston College (11-6, 2-3), which has lost 11 straight against the Tar Heels.
