Theo Pinson's career day not enough as N.C. State upsets No. 10 UNC, 95-91, in overtime

Throughout his career, good games by Theo Pinson have usually led to good results for the North Carolina men's basketball team. But against the odds, a career day for Pinson against N.C. State ended in a 95-91 overtime loss for No. 10 UNC, the second loss in a row. The Tar Heels were 16-1 in Pinson’s career when the senior scored in double figures prior to Saturday. But against the Wolfpack, 22 points (a personal best) on 10-16 shooting from the field and 15 rebounds (another career high) from Pinson weren’t enough.
