DURHAM's son WES is the voice of the NFL's ATLANTA FALCONS and also appears on RAYCOM's ACC NETWORK.

The CBS North Carolina is offering up their expertise on Tobacco Road to predict how the Triangle ACC team will fare during this week's tournament in Brooklyn.

From there, the floodgates opened for North Carolina. "He was just as good a person as he was a broadcaster".

North Carolina advances to play No. 3 Miami tonight at 9 in the quarterfinals.

"Coach said yesterday in practice we're such an unselfish team he doesn't really have to worry about us moving the ball", Pinson said.

Syracuse went through a scoring drought of more than five minutes as the Tar Heels stretched a one-point lead to 31-19. "It'll be close. There's a whole group of teams that - some that's nearly a coin flip".

Durham also was a 13-time victor of the National Sports Media Association North Carolina Sportscaster of the Year award.

Woody Durham, who served for 40 years as the "Voice of the Tar Heels" on radio, has died at the age of 76. He was the man whos blood ran Carolina Blue and he was the bridge between the coaches, athletes and fans.

North Carolina's lead grew to 56-35 with slightly less than 13 minutes to play. For comparison, the Tar Heels shot a paltry 3-10 from three-point land. Kenny Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Cameron Johnson is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. But just as visions of a second straight 21-point comeback began dancing in the heads of the Syracuse faithful in the crowd - as Notre Dame did to Virginia Tech in the previous game - UNC came to life again. There was no such comeback for Syracuse. "He had his good days and bad days". Using advanced metrics, which the selection committee will consider, the Orange don't stack up quite as well. And they finished 9-11 against ACC competition. Defensively, North Carolina yields 73.6 points per game against the opposing teams. A team that doesn't have much proven depth will likely ask a lot from its starters to win this tournament.

"He was friendly, always busy and very driven", he said.

"The ACC goes from South Bend, Indiana, to Boston to Miami", Williams said. "In many ways, we miss him, but in many ways it gave other players opportunities to step up".

The Tar Heels shot less than 44 percent for the game, but recorded 20 assists on 25 made field goals.
