: James Michael McAdoo had career highs of 26 points and 14 rebounds as the host Tar Heels pulled away from the Runnin’ Bulldogs.

Dexter Strickland added 13 points to complement McAdoo’s first career double-double as North Carolina (1-0) won for the 80th time in its last 82 home openers despite 18 turnovers and 47.4 percent shooting from the foul line.

Donta Harper and Max Landis each scored 13 points while Kevin Hartley added 10 rebounds for the Runnin’ Bulldogs, who fell to 0-16 all-time against ACC opponents and 1-9 against ranked foes.
