No. 8 UNC cruises past Pitt 85-67 (0:32)

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina clinched at least a share of the ACC regular season championship with its 85-67 win at Pittsburgh. Can claim its second straight title outright by beating either Virginia on Monday or Duke next Saturday

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina had an assist on each of its first 12 baskets against Pittsburgh until Kennedy Meeks botched an assist but got his own tap in with one minute left. Finished the half with 13 -- the Heels had just 10 total against Louisville
