UNCASVILLE, Conn.  - Marcus Paige scored 32 points and No. 24 North Carolina broke open a tight game in the second half to upset No. 3 Louisville 93-84 to win the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament.

 

Brice Johnson added 13 points and Kennedy Meeks had 13 points, 11 rebounds and five assists for the Tar Heels (4-1), who lost just a week ago at home to Belmont.

 

Russ Smith led all scorers with 36 points for Louisville, which came into the game on a school-record 21-game winning streak. Chris Jones added 18 points
