HONOLULU -- North Carolina coach Roy Williams did not mince words after his fifth-ranked Tar Heels struggled in the first half before pulling out their latest win. Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping .Isaiah Hicks scored 10 of his 16 points after halftime to lead five players in double-figures as North Carolina (4-0) beat Hawaii 83-68 Friday night.Its one of the ugliest games Ive ever coached in my entire life, Williams said, but we made some shots during a stretch in the second half that gave us the lead.North Carolina never trailed outside of the opening minutes and held a 35-27 lead at halftime despite shooting just 35.1 percent from the field. The Tar Heels had shot better than 50 percent from the field in each of their first three games.Hicks said Williams message to the team at halftime emphasized defense.He said that shots were going to fall, but weve got to be better on the defensive end, continue to rebound, get to the board and try to get them out of what they do early on, said Hicks, who shot 7 of 8 from the field.Kennedy Meeks and Nate Britt had 13 points apiece. Justin Jackson scored 11 and Tony Bradley contributed 10 points and 13 rebounds, including eight on the offensive end, off the bench.He really gave us a lift, Hicks said of Bradley, a freshman center. Thats what really got us through the game, especially Tony just getting to the boards, getting the rebounds and second-chance shots.North Carolina led by as many as 18 in the closing minutes. The Tar Heels shot 63.3 percent (19 of 30) in the second half and finished with a 46-23 rebounding edge.Their size created some issues, but we cant lean on that, Rainbow Warriors coach Eran Ganot said. Theyre bigger than us, theyre stronger than us -- those are facts -- but what we need to focus more on is how to get it done.Hawaii pulled to 40-37 on Jack Purchases banker with 16:27 left, but North Carolina answered with a 12-2 run that that was capped by a 3-pointer by Kenny Williams from the right wing that stretched its lead back to 64-49.Noah Allen, a UCLA transfer, led Hawaii with 22 points. Jack Purchase added 14 and Sheriff Drammeh 13 for the Rainbow Warriors (2-2).BIG PICTURENorth Carolina: Junior guard Joel Berry II entered averaging a team-high 21.3 points per game, but was held to just two. His only basket came on a 14-foot pull-up jumper with about 5 minutes left. ... The Tar Heels depth was evident as they dominated Hawaii in bench scoring, 28-12.Its not a concern; Its a good thing, Williams said of Berrys night. Ive never seen him miss and go one-for-nine. Then again, in the first half our starting one, two and three men were 1 for 16 and thats not good.Hawaii: The young Rainbow Warriors have only three active players back from last seasons squad that won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time in school history. Hawaii dropped to 19-104 against Top 25 teams, including a 2-19 mark vs. top-5 squads.KEY NUMBERSNorth Carolina took advantage of its size against the smaller Rainbow Warriors by grabbing 19 offensive rebounds and held a distinct edge in second chance points, 28-8. Hawaii had nine turnovers in the first half, but finished two below its season average of 16 for the game.We cut down the turnovers, but we made them at critical times. We just couldnt get over that hump because we couldnt execute at key points, Ganot said.UP NEXTNorth Carolina: The Tar Heels, who are 30-5 all-time in the 50th state, will face their second straight Hawaii opponent when they take on Division II Chaminade in a Maui Invitational quarterfinal Monday.Hawaii: The Rainbow Warriors will host Division II Hawaii-Hilo on Tuesday, their fifth of 13 straight games on-island to open the season, although five of them are part of two tournaments (Pearl Harbor Invitational, Diamond Head Classic). Wholesale Jerseys Authentic . The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. China Jerseys Wholesale . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. http://www.authenticjerseyscheap.us/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Former South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher has joined the national teams support staff in preparation for the upcoming Test series against New Zealand. Boucher, whose 147-Test career ended in 2012 with an eye injury, will work with the squad for three days before the first Test in Durban, which starts on Friday, and should also spend time with them ahead of the second Test in Centurion later this month. While his focus will be on Quinton de Kocks wicketkeeping, Boucher will also work on the lower orders batting skills and the overall mental aspect of the game.Mark is a guy that is highly respected. It will be particularly good for young Quinton de Kock to spend some time with him and work on his keeping and do a few fielding drills, coach Russell Domingo said.In the absence of AB de Villiers, who will sit out of the series with an elbow injury, de Kock is guaranteed to don the gloves in both matches. He will also have the responsibility of marshalling the tail, much like Boucher did, a particular area of focus for Domingo.Last season, he roped in then Dolphins coach Lance Klusener to work with the lower order ahead of the England series. It paid some dividends when, in the lone match South Africa won in Centurion, de Kock shared three half-century stands for the sixth, eighth and ninth wickets with Temba Bavuma, Kyle Abbott and Dane Piedt respectively.Vernon Philanders imminent return to the XI will provide another possible partner for de Kock, and Boucher is set to work with all of them on prolonging innings as much as possible. Mark enjoys working with lower order because he likes to toughen guys up, Domingo said.Primarily, its the bulldog in Boucher that Domingo wants to make use of. His main job will be to attempt to impart some of the never-say-die approach that defined his style of play into a South African side stung by a season of disappointment. After losing back-to-back Test series, they slipped from No. 1 to 6, and also crashed out of the World T20 in the first round. Authentic Jerseys USA. . Although Domingo said he will no longer use the term team in transition because of the experience in the side, he conceded that his relatively new bunch needed some mental muscle.Mark has got the reputation of having that fighting spirit and epitomising what the Proteas have always stood for in terms of being tough, Domingo said. Its by no means the same team that got that No. 1 ranking. This is a new team and this team needs to try and set their own legacy and their own benchmark. Its a great opportunity for these guys to do something special, something that not many people are expecting them to do.South Africa can climb to No. 5 with a 2-0 win over New Zealand, which Domingo hopes could be the start of their rise back up the rankings. It may also be the only way Domingo manages to keep his job, which remains at risk despite CSA abandoning an independent review into national team performances. Domingos contract runs until April next year, but with important away trips to Australia and New Zealand before then, and a Champions Trophy, followed by an England tour soon after his deal expires, this New Zealand series could be a litmus test for him, and he seems set on getting as much help as he needs to keep it.I always have tried to [bring in former players], Domingo said. To not tap into some of our past players would be foolish of us, particularly a guy that wants to offer something.Boucher is the sixth former international to work as a consultant in the Domingo era, following Gary Kirsten, Mike Hussey, Graeme Smith, Klusener and Neil McKenzie, who remains in charge as batting coach. Domingo also had two former internationals as bowling coaches, Allan Donald and incumbent Charl Langeveldt, as well as Claude Henderson as their spin-bowling coach. ' ' '
