ST. LOUIS, MO (AP) - Harrison Barnes scored five of his 12 points in overtime, and top-seeded North Carolina held off Ohio 73-65 on Friday night to avoid a huge upset.
The Bobcats, only the seventh team seeded 13th or worse to reach the regional semifinals, had a chance to convert a three-point play with 25 seconds left in regulation that would have given them the lead. Walter Offutt missed from the line, though, the only free throw the Bobcats botched all night. Then they went 0 for 6 from the field in overtime.
Tyler Zeller finished with 20 points and 22 rebounds for North Carolina (32-5), which sorely missed dazzling point guard Kendall Marshall, who is day to day with a broken right wrist.
Offutt led the 13th-seeded Bobcats (29-8) with 26 points, including 18 from 3-point range, and Nick Kellogg added 14. But D.J. Cooper, who had averaged 20 points in the first two NCAA tournament games, finished with just 10 on 3-of-20 shooting.
North Carolina plays Kansas on Sunday.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Thomas Robinson had 18 points and 15 rebounds, Jeff Withey blocked 10 shots to finish one shy of the NCAA tournament record, and No. 2 seed Kansas held on to beat North Carolina State 60-57 Friday night in the Midwest Regional semifinals.
The Jayhawks (30-6) advanced to play top-seeded North Carolina for a spot in the Final Four when Richard Howell's off-balanced heave at the buzzer came up well short.
Elijah Johnson added 11 points for the Jayhawks, including a layup off an inbound pass from Tyshawn Taylor with 13.5 seconds remaining that gave them a calming cushion.
N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried called a timeout to set up a play, but Scott Wood stepped out of bounds while fielding a cross-court pass with 5 seconds left that kept one of the nation's best 3-point shooters from getting off a shot.
C.J. Leslie had 18 points for the Wolfpack (24-13), despite sitting much of the second half with four fouls. Wood finished with 12 points on 2-for-10 shooting.
