CARMICHAEL ARENA/CHAPEL HILL UNC hosts Clemson as a part of FSN's Friday Night ACC Women's Hoops doubleheader.

The Tigers come into Chapel Hill as underdogs to the No. 14 Tar Heels, but put up more of a fight than many would have expected.

At the half, Carolina has the lead 37-30. It stretches to 50-40 before Clemson goes on a 12-1 stretch, making it 52-51 and taking its second lead.

But it doesn't last long as Italee Lucas and the Heels win 79-61.
