What was designed to be a homecoming game for star guard Marcus Paige wound up being a brutal game for the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels. In a young college basketball season ripe with big upsets already, the UNI Panthers toppled top ranked UNC 71-67. After the win, Panther fans wasted no time in storming the court. 

Paige missed the game with a broken bone in his non-shooting hand, so this game lierally added insult to injury for UNC. With the loss, Kentucky, which beat Duke on Tuesday night, will likely take over as No. 1 in the polls.
