    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Score one for size over speed.

    Italee Lucas scored 22 points and Jessica Breland added 18, helping North Carolina hold off Kentucky 86-74 in the second round of the NCAA tournament Monday night, the Tar Heels' superior height and length trumping the Wildcats' awesome quickness.

    "It all started with rebounding," Breland said after the Tar Heels' 55-31 dominance on the boards led to all sorts of problems for the Wildcats.

    North Carolina (27-8), which made it to the ACC tournament final, will face top-seeded Stanford on Saturday in Spokane, Wash.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kyrie Irving stole the inbound pass and sped downcourt toward the helpless Hampton defender under the basket. He leaped for a layup with his right hand, then switched to his left in mid-air.
    Duke’s electrifying point guard sure didn’t look like he hadn’t played since December. And if he keeps producing highlights like this, his Hall of Fame coach will take care of two milestones in a matter of days.
