ATLANTA (AP) - James Michael McAdoo scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to end a three-game scoring slump and North Carolina took control with a 12-0 second-half run to beat Georgia Tech 70-58 on Tuesday night.

McAdoo scored in double figures in 21 of the first 22 games for North Carolina before battling a sore back and scoring in single figures in each of his last three games.

The sophomore forward was sharp against the Yellow Jackets. He had 15 points in the first half and scored the final basket in the 12-0 run that gave North Carolina (18-8, 8-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 59-41 lead with 8:47 remaining. The Tar Heels stretched the lead to 22 points at 66-44.

Leslie McDonald, who had four 3-pointers, had 15 points.

Marcus Georges-Hunt and Chris Bolden scored 12 points apiece for Georgia Tech (14-11, 4-9).

CORAL GABLES, FL (AP) - Reggie Johnson made a tie-breaking layup with 5.7 seconds left Tuesday night, and the No. 2-ranked Miami Hurricanes overcame a ragged offensive performance for the second game in a row to beat Virginia 54-50 and remain unbeaten in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Durand Scott added two clinching free throws with 4.1 seconds to go for the Hurricanes, who earned their 14th consecutive victory and took a big step toward their first league title. The win came two nights after they rallied late to beat Clemson 45-43.

The Hurricanes (22-3, 13-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) improved to 12-0 at home. They hold a 3½-game edge over second-place Duke in the ACC as they chase their first league basketball championship.

Virginia (18-8, 8-5) fell to 0-6 in Miami.

RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Freshman T.J. Warren had season-highs of 31 points and 13 rebounds to help North Carolina State beat Florida State 84-66 on Tuesday night.

C.J. Leslie added 19 points for the Wolfpack (19-7, 8-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led the entire night to snap a three-game losing streak against the Seminoles. The win also snapped a four-game losing skid against Florida State (14-12, 6-7) on N.C. State's homecourt in Raleigh.

The Wolfpack dominated the boards and got plenty of second-chance baskets to stay in control of this one, earning a third straight win overall heading into this weekend's trip to rival North Carolina.

Michael Snaer scored 20 to lead the Seminoles, who have lost three of four since beating Georgia Tech on his last-second basket two weeks ago.

Warren, a 6-foot-8 forward, earned just his fifth start. He finished 12-for-15 from the field and hit two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

PHILADELPHIA (UNCW) -– Senior Taylor Wooton poured in 18 of her game-high 25 points in the second half to lead Drexel to a 59-47 victory over UNCW in Colonial Athletic Association women’s basketball action Tuesday at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.
The Dragons improved to 17-7 overall and 10-3 in CAA play while the Seahawks moved to 3-21 and 2-11 with the setback.
Wooton poured in 18 of her 25 points after the break to power a Drexel lineup that made 53.8 percent (14-of-26) of its shots in the second half to overoame a 25.8 percent (8-of-31) effort from the floor in the first half. Senior Hollie Mershon tallied 19 points, including 13 after the break, and added a team-best seven rebounds.
Sophomore Kelva Atkins scored 17 points, all in the second half, and senior Karneshia Garrett added 10 for UNCW. Atkins, Garrett and senior Chelsea McGowen pulled down six rebounds apiece as the Seahawks held a 33-28 advantage on the glass. Senior Tawanna Lee dished out a career-high seven assists.
Trailing 8-7 early in the first half, UNCW used back-to-back baskets from freshman Dana Brown and a layup by Garrett over a 4:39 span to build a 14-7 advantage.
A layup by Mershon at the 6:08 mark snapped the Seahawks spurt and ignite an 18-3 Drexel run that lasted until the 15:05 mark of the second half and gave the Dragons a 26-17 lead.
Atkins would get the Seahawks back in the contest moments later, scoring eight of the next 10 points to make it a 28-25 game, only to see the Dragons run off eight straight points to take their first double-digit lead of the game, 36-25, with 9:54 left on the clock.
The Seahawks once again cut into the Dragons deficit, scoring 15 of the next 23 points to make it a 44-40 contest with 5:19 remaining.
The Dragons responded, notching seven of the next nine points to build a 51-42 cushion with 2:54 remaining.
UNCW would make one last push, taking advantage of a free throw and 3-pointer by Lee on back-to-back possessions made it a five-point game, 51-46, with 2:09 left to play.
That would be as close as the Seahawks would get, however, as Mershon scored on three straight possessions and Wootton knocked down a pair of free throw attempts for Drexel to close the game on an 8-1 run and record the 12-point victory.
UNCW is back in action Sunday with a 2 p.m. against Northeastern while Drexel returns to the court Thursday as it entertains George Mason in a 7 p.m. contest.
