CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Nikki Teasley's eight-foot jumper with 5.7 seconds left in the second overtime gave No. 5 North Carolina an 85-84 victory over No. 12 Virginia on Sunday.
Teasley had a career-high 28 points, including eight of the Tar Heels' 10 in the second OT as North Carolina avenged a 105-100 triple-overtime loss to the Cavaliers last month.
She dribbled past Renee Robinson and pulled up for the game-winner over DeMya Walker. Virginia had one final chance, but the game ended when Mimi McKinney's baseball pass bounced off the hands of an open Kate Mooney under the Tar Heels' basket.
Tracy Reid had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Tar Heels (20-5, 10-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), and Chanel Wright had 16 points.
Walker had 24 points and five blocks for Virginia (17-7, 8-6), while McKinney and Lisa Hosac had 19 points and 14 rebounds apiece.
McKinney, who had a career-high 48 in UVA's triple-OT thriller last month, sent this one into overtime on a jumper with three seconds left, tying it at 66. With 20.6 seconds left in the first overtime, she hit 1-of-2 from the foul line to tie it at 75 and force the second overtime.
North Carolina held McKinney scoreless in the final five minutes.
Virginia had a season-high 30 turnovers, while North Carolina was only 4-for-22 from 3-point range.
The Tar Heels appeared to have the game under control with 6:35 left and a 60-50 lead. McKinney then scored five points in a 9-1 run to pull the Cavs within 61-59 with 3:40 left. Neither team led by more than four the rest of the way.
