UNC women's basketball drops season opener on last-second layup

The North Carolina women’s basketball team exchanged shots with Gardner-Webb in its season opener, but it was the Bulldogs who landed the final blow. No. 20 UNC (0-1) appeared on its way to an easy win before Gardner-Webb (1-0) stormed back to claim a 66-65 victory on the final shot of the game. Following a closely contested first half, the Tar Heels found themselves down to unranked Gardner-Webb at the break after two quarters riddled with turnovers and poor shooting. But North Carolina turned it on to start the third quarter, opening the half with a 12-2 run and claiming a 15-point advantage at the end of the quarter.
