LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) James Michael McAdoo scored 18 points to lead five North Carolina players in double figures and the ninth-ranked Tar Heels routed Division II Chaminade 112-70 on Wednesday night in the Maui Invitational.

It was the first time this season that the Tar Heels (5-1) have topped the century mark. They put up 62 points in the first half after being held to 18 points in the first half in Tuesday's loss to Butler.

Tournament host Chaminade (3-3) scored consecutive baskets just three times.

North Carolina (5-1) flies home Thursday before facing top-ranked Indiana in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge next week.
