Louisville loses in final minute to No. 18 UNC, 72-71
The Tar Heels took the lead with eight seconds left on a driving floater by preseason All-American Marcus Paige.
The Cardinals raced back down the floor, and an open corner 3-pointer by senior Wayne Blackshear missed off the back iron.
Sophomore Terry Rozier got the rebound, but his last-second shot clanged off the backboard and the front rim, giving UNC the upset win.
Rozier led Louisville with 25 points, five rebounds and five assists.
The 14-2 Cardinals next host Virginia Tech on Tuesday at the KFC Yum! Center.
