No. 14 North Carolina survived an upset scare from Davidson on Saturday, knocking off the Wildcats in overtime, 97-85. The Tar Heels were on the ropes, but somehow managed to find some firepower late in the game.
Judging from Golden State Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes’ Instagram, there were some bragging rights riding on the game. Barnes shared this photo of fellow teammate Steph Curry rocking a Tar Heels sweater with the caption, “Good win tonight against the Lakers and a surprise from steph! #UNC sweater is making it’s way around the locker room.”
Barnes played for North Carolina from 2010-12, while Curry suited up for Davidson from 2006-09.
