(Newser) – Maryland did today what 18 schools before them couldn't: slow down Tyler Hansbrough and beat No. 1 North Carolina, the AP reports. Hansbrough still racked up numbers, but the Terrapins took the win as Bambale Osby scored on a layup with 21 seconds left for an 82-80 ACC upset, handing North Carolina its first loss of the season.

Hansbrough had 17 points and 14 rebounds, but the tough Terrapins defense confused the Tar Heels' (18-1, 3-1) offense enough for the road upset. This from a Maryland (12-7, 2-2) team that had lost back-to-back home games in December to Ohio and American. James Gist led Maryland with 22 points and 13 rebounds.
