North Carolina (20-7, 9-5 ACC) extended its winning streak to four games with a strong 83-66 win over Notre Dame (15-11, 5-8) inside the Dean Smith Center on Monday night.
The win gave coach Roy Williams his 418th with the Tar Heels — giving him the same amount of wins as he had with Kansas. Of course, he was already the first coach in college basketball history to record 300 wins with multiple schools:

Joel Berry II led the way for UNC with 21 points for the Tar Heels (20-7, 9-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), while Theo Pinson produced a double-double, scoring 14 of his 16 points in the second half to compliment his 10 rebounds. Cameron Johnson — who ignited a late 18-5 run with this massive dunk — finished with 13 points, and Kenny Williams added 14 more.
Here’s what coach Williams had to say after the victory against the Irish:
North Carolina, which closed a tough stretch of three games in five days for the first time since 1980*, will take the next four days off before traveling to Louisville (18-8, 8-5) on Saturday, Feb. 17 for an 8:15 p.m. ET tip-off on ESPN.
