CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Ed Davis had 18 points to help No. 9 North Carolina beat Albany 87-70 on Wednesday night.
Deon Thompson added 15 points for the Tar Heels (11-3), who had an easy time in their next-to-last game before opening Atlantic Coast Conference play. Despite being short-handed, North Carolina built a double-digit lead midway through the first half and coasted the rest of the way for its third straight win since losing to No. 2 Texas.
The Tar Heels played without fifth-year senior Marcus Ginyard and sophomore Justin Watts. Watts injured his right ankle during Monday's win against Rutgers, while Ginyard has missed two straight since spraining his right ankle in practice.
Will Harris scored 22 points to lead the Great Danes (4-10), who ended an eight-game road trip with just one victory. Albany hasn't played at home since beating Robert Morris on Nov. 22.
