ACC basketball tournament 2013: Miami leading North Carolina at halftime

Streeter Lecka

Miami and North Carolina are raining threes all over Greensboro. The Hurricanes lead the ACC title game, 44-41, at halftime.

The ACC Tournament Championship has been a true barn-burner so far. The Miami Hurricanes lead the North Carolina Tar Heels, 44-41, at halftime.

The game has been a three-point show. Miami made 7 of 12 from beyond the arc, while North Carolina sank 8 of 17. It's been a thrilling back-and-forth battle, with 14 lead changes in the first 20 minutes of competition. Shane Larkin is the Hurricanes' leading scorer, with 15 points, five assists and three of those three-pointers. On the Tar Heels' side, P.J. Hairston took over the game for a while, scoring nine points in a one-minute stretch. He went into the locker room with 15.

Miami is currently shooting 54.5 percent from the field, and North Carolina has made 43.8 percent of its field goals. The refs have been letting the players play for the most part, as only 10 personal fouls have been called and seven free throws attempted.

The Hurricanes are playing the kind of fast-tempo offense they thrive in, and if they keep it up, may be able to wear down the Heels in the second half.
