CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- J.J. Mann scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds Sunday, sparking Belmont to an 83-80 upset of 11th-ranked North Carolina in a Hall of Fame Tip-Off game.

Mann drained a trio of 3-pointers in the final 3 minutes, helping the Bruins (3-1) erase an eight-point deficit and post an 81-80 lead.

The Tar Heels' J.P. Tokoto missed a shot in the closing seconds and Belmont's Caleb Chowbay then put away the win with a layup.

Drew Windler added 16 points as the Bruins logged their first-ever victory against an ACC team.

North Carolina (2-1) had its streak of 82 straight home wins against unranked non-conference opponents snapped with the stunning loss.

James Michael McAdoo provided 27 points with 13 rebounds and Marcus Paige added 17 points and five assists for the Tar Heels.
