After a competitive first half, North Carolina pulled away from Temple in the second session of Friday night's contest, leading to a great deal of frustration for the Owls. Temple guard Shawn Alston might have gone a bit overboard in showing it.

With less than a minute to play, UNC's Brice Johnson threw down a put-back slam off of a Joel Berry missed jumper. Alston took offense to Johnson's hanging on the rim, and threw him to the ground, causing a scuffle. Here's a Vine of the play.

Alston was assessed a technical, for the record. UNC got the win, 91-67.
