sad news; Tar heel coach Hubert Davis has announce resignation and departure from

Richmond, Virginia — Without touching the ball, Cormac Ryan executed one of his best offensive plays on Saturday.

Inside John Paul Jones Arena, the 25-year-old senior, in his sixth year, demonstrated his shooting range by making six 3-pointers against Virginia. By the end of the first half, the Cavaliers had put him on an all-points bulletin.

At 1:44 of the second half on Saturday, UNC devised a play in which Ryan, with Elliot Cadeau handling the ball up top, ran off screens from Armando Bacot and Harrison Ingram to get an open look at a 3-pointer.

However, Ryan brought Ingram’s defender with him because he was so closely watched without the ball, opening up Ingram for a layup after a pass from Cadeau.

“Cormac made that play,” Cadeau remarked, “because he got all the attention on him by making all those threes, which left one of his teammates wide open.”

In North Carolina’s 54-44 road victory over Virginia on Saturday, Ryan scored all 18 of his points from three-point range. It was UNC’s first victory over the Cavaliers in Charlottesville since 2012. He nailed all but one of North Carolina’s free throw attempts during the game, and he scored 15 points in the first half.

Ryan remarked, “It was definitely one of the better first-half feelings I’ve had.” “Watching a couple go down and start it rolling is always a good thing.”
