North Carolina survives scare by Providence

SAN ANTONIO (AP) North Carolina isn't going home early like Duke. But only just barely.

James Michael McAdoo sank two free throws in the final 3.5 seconds after the No. 6 seed Tar Heels had trailed just a minute earlier, and North Carolina hung on to beat pesky 11th-seeded Providence 79-77 Friday night.

Had North Carolina (24-9) lost, it would've been the first time since 1979 the Tar Heels and rival Blue Devils lost on the same day of the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils fell earlier to 14th-seeded Mercer, and the Friars nearly handed North Carolina a similar stunner.
