If you missed the news out of Chapel Hill amid Week 15’s NFL action, the Wofford Terriers upset No. 17 North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Sunday, 68-64.

The Terriers winning at Chapel Hill might not feel quite as special this time around because Wofford beat the Tar Heels on their home court just two years ago, 79-75. Back then, North Carolina was ranked No. 5 in the nation (and a 25-point favorite). A 16-0 run by the Terriers pushed them over the top, powered by four three-pointers. During the six-minute stretch, North Carolina missed 10 consecutive shots. The decisive shot came from Nathan Hoover with 25.4 seconds remaining.

North Carolina didn’t have leading scorer Cole Anthony. The freshman, averaging 19.1 points per game, is out indefinitely with a right knee injury. The Tar Heels were also missing Leaky Black, out with a sprained right foot.

Here’s the call from Jim Noble on the Wofford men’s basketball radio broadcast:

Hoover for three… DAGGER!

Here’s how Wofford’s upset sounded on the ESPN telecast:

After the buzzer sounded, Noble and Thom Henson had some good lines about the Terriers’ recent success in Chapel Hill conveying the sort of excitement you’d expect from a mid-major (and 14.5-point underdog) upsetting one of college basketball’s powerhouses.

The Terriers need to pay some taxes here in Chapel Hill, because they own some land.

No, this wasn’t a buzzer-beating upset like Stephen F. Austin’s shocker at Duke three weeks ago. Wofford had the game in hand when the final seconds ran off the clock. But this was a stunner, nonetheless.

Besides, the Terriers have been there, done that when it comes to beating North Carolina. And this is not the typically formidable Tar Heels team we’re accustomed to seeing. UNC has lost three straight games, falling to Ohio State and Virginia in their previous two contests. Earlier this season, the Tar Heels lost to Michigan at the Battle for Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas.

Trevor Stumpe led Wofford with 19 points, followed by Storm Murphy’s 15 and 13 points from Messiah Jones. North Carolina was led by Garrison Brooks’ 17 points and 12 rebounds, while Brandon Robinson scored 16.

Sunday’s game was supposed to be a special one on the UNC campus. The Tar Heels were playing a regular season game at Carmichael Arena for the first time in more than 30 years. Scheduling (notably with UNC traveling to Gonzaga for a game Wednesday) necessitated that the game be played Sunday. However, the Dean E. Smith Center was unavailable for basketball because of Winter Commencement ceremonies.

North Carolina played its home games at the 8,000-seat Carmichael from 1965 to 1986, compiling a 169-20 record and winning the 1981-82 national championship during that span.

Wofford plays at No. 7 Duke Thursday. Do the Terriers have another upset in them?
