CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Xylina McDaniel scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the No. 14 North Carolina women to a 76-56 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Wake Forest on Thursday night.

The victory was the third in a row for the Tar Heels (23-3, 11-2), who extended their winning streak at Carmichael Arena against the Demon Deacons (11-14, 4-9) to 18 in a row.

Tierra Ruffin-Pratt came off the bench to score 13 points for North Carolina, whose reserves outscored Wake Forest's 37-12.

The Tar Heels, who lead the nation in steals with 14.3 per game, had 12 against the Demon Deacons, helping them amass 20 points off 23 Wake Forest turnovers. North Carolina turned the ball over 18 times, but that resulted in just nine Wake Forest points.

Chelsea Douglas scored 13 points and Asia Williams 12 for Wake Forest. Douglas, a junior guard, now has 1,010 career points.
