CHAPEL HILL — Talk about a battle of hard heads.
North Carolina got a bit of a scare during its 80-72 win over William and Mary in the first round in the NIT on Tuesday when, with 7:32 left in the first half, teammates Marcus Ginyard and Travis Wear collided -- leaving Wear with a bloody cut about his right eye, and Ginyard woozliy sitting on the court.
"Got hit right in the back -- his right eye to the back-side of my head,'' Ginyard said. "It was just startling. It knocked me down, and then getting up, it was a little fuzzy, and the referee just told me to stay down."
