CHAPEL HILL â€” Dante Battle and Terrill Hilliard both had double-doubles as Rocky Mount beat Hickory 78-64 Saturday night for the Class 3-A North Carolina High School Athletic Association men's championship.

Kenneth Peoples chipped in 12 points and Tabias Hilliard 10 for Rocky Mount, which shot 41.8 percent and outrebounded Hickory 51-38.
ATLANTA â€” After a rugged, foul-plagued game in which each team lost its top scorer, the officials put their whistles away in the closing seconds.
It worked out just fine for North Carolina.
It sent North Carolina State into a tizzy.
Kendall Marshall banked in a shot with 10.2 seconds remaining and the fourth-ranked Tar Heels came up with a pair of defensive stops to edge their state rival, escaping a wild finish with a 69-67 victory over N.C. State in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Saturday.
