    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Xylina McDaniel hit 11 of 15 shots and scored a game-high 25 points to lead No. 18 North Carolina in a 75-62 victory over No. 15 Nebraska on Wednesday night.

    McDaniel, in addition to 73.3 percent shooting, grabbed eight rebounds for the Tar Heels (7-2). UNC shot 48.5 percent from the floor and 5 of 11 from behind the line, but finished with 10 more steals and seven more rebounds than Nebraska.

    The Huskers, who faced their first ranked opponent of the season, shot a perfect 12 of 12 from the line, but finished just 39.3 percent from the floor and 28.6 percent from behind the arc. Jordan Hooper led the team with 18 points.

    The Huskers (6-2) have now suffered back-to-back losses after falling 76-72 on Nov. 30 to Washington State.
