CANCUN, Mexico -- Stephanie Mavunga had a game-high 24 points and 12 rebounds as No. 11 North Carolina defeated Illinois 87-51 Saturday at the Cancun Challenge at the Hard Rock Resort.

Illinois (5-3) scored 19 second-half points and made just two of 15 from the floor during the last ten minutes. Sarah Hartwell and Amber Moore each scored in double figures, and Jacqui Grant scored eight points and had 12 rebounds to lead the Illini.
