MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP)—Chay Shegog scored 19 points and Krista Goss had 12 points and 12 rebounds to lead No. 23 North Carolina to a 65-61 win over East Carolina on Tuesday night.

The Tar Heels (8-2) used their size to pull out the win. They twice got rebounds after missing free throws in the final 23 seconds, keeping the Pirates (6-4) from beating a Top 25 team for the first time in four years.

North Carolina survived another low-scoring night. They came into their two games in Myrtle Beach leading the nation at 87.5 points a game, but scored just 48 in a loss to South Carolina on Sunday.

Chareya Smith led East Carolina with 14 points, while Tatiana Chapple added 11 points and seven rebounds.
