    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Vanessa Panousis tied a career-high with 24 points as Virginia Tech won for the first time in Chapel Hill, upsetting No. 11 North Carolina 50-47 on Sunday.

    Virginia Tech led the second half until North Carolina used a 13-1 run to take a 43-37 lead with 6:55 remaining. The Hokies answered with an 8-0 run, capped by Panousis' three points, to regain the lead at 46-43 with 1:56 to play.

    UNC's Diamond DeShields was fouled on a 3-point attempt, yet made just two of three free throws to pull the Tar Heels within one. Panousis then made four straight free throws to give the Hokies a five-point lead with 6 seconds left.

    Virginia Tech (13-14, 3-11 ACC) won for the first time in 10 tries at UNC.

    Xylina McDaniel scored 13 points to lead cold-shooting North Carolina (21-7, 9-5), which shot 15 of 56 (26.8 percent) from the floor.
