LAHAINA, HI (AP) - Maybe North Carolina should have just gone to the beach. Butler is the team to beat in Maui.

Rotnei Clarke and Kellen Dunham each scored 17 points Tuesday night to lead the unranked Bulldogs past No. 9 UNC, jumping out to a 17-point halftime lead and holding back several second-half surges from the Tar Heels in the second round of the Maui Invitational.

The Tar Heels (4-1) missed their first three shots and never led.

One day after a buzzer-beater over Marquette, Butler (3-1) held North Carolina to 18 points in the first half. It was by far the worst output in a half for the Tar Heels so far this season.

P.J. Hairston led UNC with 15 points.

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Joseph Bertrand had a season-high 14 points as Illinois beat Division II Chaminade 84-61 on Tuesday night to advance to the final of the Maui Invitational.

Brandon Paul scored 13 points, D.J. Richardson had 11 and Tyler Griffey added 10 as the Illini denied the tournament's host school a chance at shocking the college hoops world on consecutive nights. Illinois (5-0) shot 49 percent from the field and never trailed.

Illinois will play Butler on Wednesday night for the tournament title. Butler took down the eight-team field's only ranked team earlier Tuesday, beating No. 9 North Carolina 82-71.

Chaminade (3-2) will play UNC in the third-place game. The tiny Catholic school became a trending topic on Twitter after a rout of Texas on Monday night.

GRINNELL, IA (AP) - Jack Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III Grinnell's 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night.

Taylor made 27 of 71 3-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes.

Rio Grande's Bevo Francis held the NCAA scoring record with 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954. In 1953, Francis had 116 against Ashland Junior College.

The previous Grinnell record was 89 by Griffin Lentsch last Nov. 19 against Principia.

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (UNCW) -– The UNCW men’s basketball team heads back to the Upper Midwest Wednesday to take on Big Ten Conference member Purdue in a televised Thanksgiving Eve contest at black and gold Mackey Arena.

The Seahawks, 1-2, and Boilermakers, 1-3, tip-off at 8:06 p.m. in a game being carried on the Big Ten Network. Both clubs are looking to snap two-game losing streaks early in the 2012-13 campaign,

“This will be another big challenge for us,” said third-year UNCW Head Coach Buzz Peterson. “Purdue has had a very good program and Coach (Matt) Painter is searching for the right chemistry for his young team. I’m sure they’ll be anxious to play at home after being on the road the last couple games.”

UNCW is searching for some answers after falling by wide margins at Richmond and Ohio. The Seahawks are concluding a difficult three-game road swing before returning home this weekend for the final two games of the Nations of Coaches Classic.

The Boilermakers, meanwhile, dropped a pair of outings in the 2K Sports Classic to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project in New York, where Painter’s squad fell to Villanova and Oregon State. The Beavers topped the Boilermakers, 66-58, last Wednesday

Mid-American Conference favorite Ohio cruised past UNCW, 85-47, in the last outing for Peterson and his team. The Bobcats, who reached the 2012 NCAA Sweet Sixteen, shot 57.6 percent from the field, including 65.6 percent in the second half, to extend the Seahawks’ road losing skein to eight games spanning back to last season.

Senior forward Keith Rendleman continues to be a bright spot for the Seahawks. The Iron Station, N.C., workhorse has reached double figures in all three contests this year and owns the longest double figures scoring streak in the Colonial Athletic Association at 15 games. He had 17 points and seven rebounds in the loss last week in Athens.

Painter is starting his eighth season at Purdue and has ties to North Carolina. He spent some time at Campbell in Buies Creek before moving on to serve as head coach at Barton College in Wilson. The three-time Big Ten Conference Coach-of-the-Year has piloted the Boilermakers to six consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, including two berths in the Sweet Sixteen.

One of Painter’s aides, Greg Gary, knows the Seahawks well. His brother, Mark, played for the Seahawks from 1985-88, making 116 appearances under former coaches Mel Gibson and Robert McPherson.

UNCW is one of three CAA teams on the Purdue schedule this season. The Boilermakers crushed Hofstra, 83-54, back on Nov. 11, and also entertain William & Mary on Dec. 29 in West Lafayette.

The Seahawks stand 3-7 against the Big Ten Conference through the years and have beaten Northwestern, Minnesota and Penn State from the loop. Ohio State, then-ranked fourth in the nation, rolled to an 81-41 victory on Nov. 20, 2010, in UNCW’s last battle against a Big Ten opponent.

Wednesday marks Peterson’s first trip to Mackey Arena and his first matchup against the Boilermakers. He owns a 1-6 all-time ledger against the Big Ten, with his lone win coming vs. Minnesota in the second-round of the 2001 NIT.

Following Wednesday’s late game, the Seahawks play three of their next four tests at home, beginning with a 2 p.m. clash Saturday against Wofford of the Southern Conference. Peterson’s squad then faces Hampton on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the final game of the Nations of Coaches Classic.
