North Carolina vs. Mississippi State: Live Score, Reaction for Maui Invitational
Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

The game was never even close between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the North Carolina Tar Heels in the first round of the Maui Invitational.

UNC showed why they deserve their No. 9 ranking, as they absolutely crushed the Bulldogs 95-49. The treys did turn out to be the story of the game, as I predicted.

Carolina was 15-of-33 from downtown, while Mississippi State could only muster two treys on 17 attempts.

The day started off with a miracle win, but it just wasn't to be for the depleted Bulldogs.

The Tar Heels will take on the Butler Bulldogs, who took out the Marquette Golden Eagles with a buzzer-beater by Rotnei Clarke in the opener.
