College of Charleston Stuns #9 North Carolina
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Andrew Goudelock's long 3-pointer tied the game with 2 seconds left in regulation, Donavan Monroe gave College of Charleston the lead for good with a 3 to start overtime and the Cougars beat No. 9 North Carolina 82-79 Monday night.

The Tar Heels (11-4) had trailed most of the game, but used a late run to take a 72-61 lead with 4 minutes to go. That's when Goudelock and the Cougars (8-6) got going.

Goudelock scored the last 8 points in regulation, including the fadeaway 3 from about 28 feet with 6-foot-10 Ed Davis in his face to make it 73-all.

Monroe hit the go-ahead 3-pointer and his two free throws with 18 seconds left provided the final margin.

Charleston beat a ranked opponent for the first time since defeating the third-ranked Tar Heels 66-64 on Dec. 5, 1998.

Goudelock scored 24 points, while Davis had 18 points and 16 rebounds.
