UNC women's basketball falls to Syracuse 74-56, after sloppy play and poor shooting

The North Carolina women’s basketball team’s shooting woes continued in its third straight loss of the season, shooting under 33 percent from the field in a 74-56 defeat to Syracuse on Thursday night.  Head coach Courtney Banghart’s team had yet to lose back-to-back games before they played Duke last Thursday, but after the team’s toughest week of the season they have now slipped from the top-4 to the middle of the pack in ACC standings.
