NCAA basketball: In ACC tournament, North Carolina beats Miami on Tyler Zeller's lay-in

By Matt Bonesteel

Down 19 with about 10 minutes left in the second half, North Carolina staged a furious rally to beat Miami on Tyler Zeller's unguarded lay-in after a nice dish by Kendall Marshall. The top-seeded Tar Heels advanced to Saturday's ACC tournament semifinals.

Miami now has had a hand in one of the most improbable comebacks in college basketball history, and one of the more monumental collapses in ACC tournament history. All in a span of two days. Impressive.

Box score here. The blow-by-blow of North Carolina's comeback is here.

Take a break from basketball and turn your eyes to Philadelphia next week for the NCAA wrestling championships. Locals Maryland and AU are sending a number of qualifiers and both could wind up in the top ten
