CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Candance Brown made a layup with 1.2 seconds left and Gardner-Webb rallied to shock No. 22 North Carolina 66-65 on Friday in the opener for both teams.

Gardner-Webb trailed by 15 points entering the fourth quarter.

Kiera Currie's 3-pointer with 6:12 to play capped a 16-2 run to open the fourth quarter, but the Bulldogs didn't take a lead until Currie's jumper at the 3:05 mark. The teams traded the lead several times, with the Tar Heels, who had not lost an opener since falling to Buffalo in 2000, going up 65-64 on Jamie Cherry's 3-pointer with 8 seconds left.

The Bulldogs, who had never beaten a ranked team before, called a timeout with 7 seconds to go and - per the new rules implemented this season along with the change to four quarters instead of two halves - were allowed to inbound the ball in the front court.

Brown finished with 17 points. Alexus Hill added 14 points for the Bulldogs and Olivia Parker had 11 points and 11 rebounds. Cherry led North Carolina with 25 points.

Gardner-Webb led 25-24 at halftime but the Tar Heels took control by outscoring the Bulldogs 27-11 in the third quarter.
