An upset (of course), and so much more

So #17 North Carolina upset #3 Duke, 89-78. Freshman Diamond DeShields lead the Heels with 30 points. She also pointedly yawned at the usual crazed Duke fans. (Is this kid really a freshman?). Check the photos on ESPN’s site.

#8 Tennessee stomped #16 Vanderbilt, 81-53.

Full scoreboard.
