UNC Vs. Kentucky Score: Dexter Strickland, Tyler Zeller Step It Up As Heels Rally

The North Carolina Tar Heels are only going to get so many chances to put together a comeback against the sharp-shooting Kentucky Wildcats, and they’re making the most of their current run. With just under eight minutes left, the Heels are now only down four, 59-55.

Tyler Zeller, who didn’t look like much of a match for the intense and powerful Josh Harrelson early on, scored a block against his counterpart, grabbed his game-high sixth rebound, and also took over as the contest’s top scorer, with 17 points. Dexter Strickland has seven points in the second half.

Kentucky has suddenly started turning the ball over, with seven in the second half. They’ve kept their deep shooting edge intact, but UNC has found an interior advantage.
