East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) -
There will be a new No. 1 team in college basketball next week.
The unpredictable North Carolina Tar Heels used a balanced scoring attack in front of a hostile Breslin Center crowd to knock off the top-ranked Michigan State Spartans, 79-65, in the marquee showdown of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Kennedy Meeks led five North Carolina players in double figures with 15 points while J.P. Tokoto added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels (5-2), who never trailed en route to an NCAA-best 13th win over No. 1 ranked teams.
