Greensboro, NC (Sports Network) - P.J. Hairston netted 21 points to lead the third-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels to the ACC Tournament semifinals with an 83-62 win over the Florida State Seminoles at Greensboro Coliseum.

Reggie Bullock tallied 17 points and a game-high nine rebounds for North Carolina (23-9), which will face seventh-seeded Maryland in the semifinals. James Michael McAdoo and Dexter Strickland added 12 and 10 points, respectively, while Marcus Paige reached double digits in assists (10) for the first time in his career.
