ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Freshman RJ Davis scored 16 points and No. 14 North Carolina overcame an ugly start to beat UNLV 78-51 in the first round of the relocated Maui Invitational.

Garrison Brooks added 14 points and surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career in the first half for the Tar Heels.

UNC fell behind 13-0 and didn't score for the first 6 1/2 minutes.

But UNC closed the gap then ran off a 28-4 run spanning halftime to take a big lead of its own.

Bryce Hamilton had 15 points to lead UNLV.
