It's over in Chapel Hill. UNC 88, Syracuse 79 in OT. Cole Swider with 36 points but it's not enough as the Tar Heels outscore SU 15-6 in overtime. Syracuse falls to 15-15 (9-10) on the season. pic.twitter.com/q9DytENzAK

No shame in losing in OT at UNC, but frustrating because it's just who they've been all season. Can't play defense and can't close games out.
Incredible performance from Swider.
