ATLANTA (AP) -Freshman Derrick Favors shook off a scoring slump with 13 points and Georgia Tech beat North Carolina 68-51 on Tuesday night in the Tar Heels' lowest scoring game in the Roy Williams era.
North Carolina's previous scoring low in Williams' seven seasons as coach came in a 64-54 loss to Duke on Feb. 10. The Tar Heels also set Williams-era lows for points in a half after trailing 41-21 at halftime.
Georgia Tech (18-8, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended a two-game losing streak and completed its first regular-season sweep of the Tar Heels since 1995-96. The Yellow Jackets are 5-1 at home, but 1-5 on the road in ACC games.
North Carolina (14-12, 3-8) fell to 2-8 in its last 10 games, with its only wins in that span coming against N.C. State.
