Bye-bye losing streak.  The North Carolina women’s basketball team avenged a January loss against Boston College and broke their losing streak, advancing in the ACC Tournament with notable performances from redshirt junior Paris Kea and ACC Freshman of the Year Janelle Bailey.  “All of my family was here, and some friends were in the stands,” Kea said. “I had Greensboro on my back today.”   “It’s surreal to me,” Bailey said of her award. “It’s crazy to think about, but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and my coaches.”  North Carolina will have a chance to avenge a pair of losses against fifth-seeded N.C.
