CHAPEL HILL, N.C. —
When that score went up on the video board during a timeout, the crowd followed with a loud, sustained ovation and the students chanted "Go to hell, Duke!"
Then the Tar Heels themselves got clicking, building their first double-figure lead while holding Georgia Tech without a field goal for 4½ minutes. McAdoo's dunk from the baseline with 9½ minutes left put them up 25-15 and brought McCants — who starred on the 2005 national championship team — to his feet.
The lead grew to 13 on Bullock's 3-pointer with 8 minutes left before the Yellow Jackets rallied.
Earlier in the day, the Tar Heels found out they'll be without junior guard Leslie McDonald for three more games. He missed the previous three games with a knee injury, but was suspended for three more after coach Roy Williams said he "did not do what we expect of our student-athletes."
